Just an update from the Quilt Built studio. After pulling all of those fabrics out it took me awhile to stack them and re organize. Even Rosie is pleased!

January Tea Time at Beginnings, continues

An antique basket top, partly hand and machine pieced, got lots of raves. Note how the blocks are set so there is not an up or down. Clever woman of long ago.

The grand finale from Connie, again. Known as the Pizza quilt but done here in more feed sacks. Note the half cookies on the table brought from Connie as my Half Birthday to share with all. So fun and meaningful to sign lots of my new Scrap Happy Quilts book for fellow quilters. Stay tuned for next month.
