This 'n That

This week I finished off putting on the borders on my Tessellating Crosses quit.

Not sure I'm enamored with it.  

I had a tough time finding a red that I liked for my first border 
so bought a chocolate brown, then the off white 
and finally the coral red for the large border.

It works well, just not what I had envisioned.


Having said that I totally enjoyed doing this pattern and would do it again!


Looks nice with my red kitchen wall.

My daughter was putting in an order with Amazon and asked if I wanted anything.
I had taken this book out of the library and said that at some point I would like to purchase it.


It came yesterday and I am looking forward to exploring and playing.

I was off work on Wednesday because I had an appointment 
with the dentist to take out one a wisdom tooth 
that she deemed 'should come out.'
In and out in half hour with just freezing.  

So glad that's over!!

The next morning I got up to get ready for work and was greeted with this lovely sunrise.

 
What spectacular colours that were on display.

Stay warm this weekend!!

  3. I think your quilt is lovely. Put it away and look at it again in a month. Perhaps you'll then love it!
    Incredible colors in the sunrise. Beautiful. Inspire another quilt? Hugs, Wendy

  4. Ditto Wendy! I think it's a fabby quilt, Shauna - love your colour choices - I think they bounce well off each other :)
    Thank you for reminding me - I have Angela's book and I will dig it our for some ideas for my soldier's quilt.
