It's March, already...

It's March, and I'm back. Even though it was a very tough time for myself and my family it was great to see so many family members come together. Where has the time gone. It feels like March came extremely quick. This is what my machine was doing for the latter part of February...

I made that machine cover, to keep the dust bunnies out and...yes, I know the little doll I made next to my machine needs hair and proper clothing. :) I'm a bad doll Mom.

I'm almost done with my New York Beauty quilt. I think I'm going to add a black border all around it. What do you think? Then, maybe a scrappy color border.

It looks almost exactly like what I designed in EQ...

I also worked on some applique. It came in handy while I spent so much time at my Mother's house. This WIP started when I wanted to practice making a Lone Star, then I decided to add applique. I think I'll add on a border or maybe something else to add more color. It's nice sometimes when quilts have no particular direction. It'll be interesting to see what the finish quilt will look like.

Till next time,
