SewConnected - January

I have been sitting on this fabric all month - and the last week haven't gotten sew much. Last night I ignored the dinner dishes and set to work after the kids went to bed.
January is Tracy's month - she has a green living room and is making a quilt to coordinate. I love the luxurious fabrics that Tracy sent! I really wanted to highlight the silk somehow - and this is what I came up with. I hope you like it Tracy! The quilt is going to be fantastic - you can check out the other blocks over on flickr.

Now I need to get my other block done for Amy . . .

Hope you are having a great Friday!
Blessings - Amy

You've got me itchin' to get back into quilting. It seems I can only do one hobby at a time and it's been several years since I've quilted. Did you see any stars last week during Sundance? My hubby was up there but didn't see anyone interesting.

It looks so sophisticated! You did an excellent job of making the fabrics work for you. :)
