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,


  1. My gosh, Dara your New York Beauty quilt is fabulous! The black inner border followed with a colourful scrappy border will look fantastic. I love it. Your applique is also very pretty. I'm looking forward to seeing both of them finished.

    My condolences on the loss of your grandpa. :(

    1. Thanks so much Tammy for your condolences :) I think i'm going to do the black inner border with a scrappy outer border, thanks for your kind words!


I love comments!
