SewConnected!


I have been included in the most fabulous group of quilters! Each month we receive a packet of fabric and make one quilt block for another member of the group, and send it back. I received my packet this week and it so great! Rita is setting the bar pretty high for the rest of us :) She included a piece of embroidery for each block - I have to think up something fabulous! I have been working hard on my quilted bookmarks. Yesterday I finished appliqueing the stems to the front. I need to cut my backing and get them put together today :) It's fun!

If you click the button on my left-sidebar, it takes you to the group - and you can check out pictures.
