Pretty Color

There is nothing like a good jolt of pretty color to start the day.  I'm currently binding a quilt that I made using Trish's pattern.  I can't wait to show it to you.  Have you seen the latest Romantic Homes? The cover is so gorgeous!  You could make a whole quilt using the cover colors as inspiration.  I've been able to get a little sewing done this week.  I made a valance for the kitchen.  I used a decorator fabric that was in my stash (sorry, no name on it) and added trim and a ruffle using Paris Flea Market. A house is being built behind me so my screen is in permanent dirt status until it's finished…a pretty valance makes it so much better!  My sewing room is coming along s-l-o-w-l-y.  I'm still trying to figure out where everything should go.  It is fun to open another box and find pretty retro cake decorating items.  Have a blessed day!

  7. I love your little quilt. Can you tell me the name of your binding? I got a little piece of that fabric in a grab bag and I would love to see if I can get some more, but I don't know the name of it.

    I love your valance! I find your blog so inspiring.

  8. One of my favorite magazines.

    I love your quilt. I love the backing fabric. Where did you get that.

    1. Hi Renee! The backing fabric has been in my stash for a while now. It came from JoAnn Fabrics.
