Off to Chicago


This is going to be quick but I wanted you to know that I have been sewing...I couldn't post this picture though because it was for an event at the shop this past Sunday, Spa Day, and the quilt is always a surprise. I don't know if anyone from the group would have seen it, but you just never know. This was lots of fun to do and got rid of a ton of scraps.
I'm off on a plane this morning for Chicago to spend until Sunday with Josh, Katie and Hampton. I just can't wait to hold him. I'll try to post some pictures from up there. I think I'm probably going to freeze...this Florida girl in the very cold, windy city. I'll keep you posted.

What a splendid kaleidoscope! One of my favorites, and love that you did it with scraps, as ossposed to careful matching of seam lines. This is an outstanding project. Thanks for the photo!

Great quilt! I'm really beginning to like any scrappy looking quilt I see. Good thing since my scrap pile is getting higher by the day. Welcome to the ring from one newbie to another.
