I think I'm in love.....

Liberty Fields
design by Kathy Doughty
from Material Obsession


I've been SEW busy the last few days.....
(I've even been getting up while it is still dark to sew!!)


Using up scraps... 714 pieces in the star flowers - plus 26 pieces for leaves - anyone feel like counting the sashing?

It's big.... 81" x 94" 


I love all quilts... but I think I love scrappy quilts the best

I have to make unscrappy quilts in order to get scraps for my scrappy quilts
it's a win, win really

I think I am in love

Chilly evenings are for handsewing..... some needleturn.....


some secret stitching ......
(sneaky peak for you Cathy) 


Righto, Gotto Go...... I think I'm going to make a cup of tea, unfold that quilt top and look at it......
