SewConnected – January


Posted on January 23rd, by Amy in SewConnected. 17 comments

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.
