I knew when I chose these fabrics that I didn't love them together, but went ahead anyway. Now I'm not sure if I like this quilt or hate it. Thanks to Smith-Appleby House Museum for the setting.

This pattern is a mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter.  Fun but LOTS of pieces and cutting.

To enlarge or not to enlarge, that's the question.

 This quilt top is on my waterbed (thus the lumpiness) right now.  It's for my son's good friend and I'm trying to decide whether or not to put some borders on it.  I actually should find out what size his bed is - duh!

This is the "Nifty Thrifty" pattern from Scraps & Shirttails, one of Bonnie Hunter's books.  It's all men's shirts that I picked up here and there.  I'm sure I showed you some blocks somewhere along the way.  I hope to finish it this Saturday at the RI Modern Quilting Guild's Sewing Day at Ryco, or at least come close to completion.
I hope you are well!  May you bless and be blessed!
