Snip Snip Here....

Ummmmmmmmmmmmm.........yeah........ Allow me to introduce you to the pieces from the Maltese Star, Mystery #24 from the MysteryQuilts4Military Yahoo Group. I had NO intentions of doing this---honest engine......but when I was pressing, folding and organizing some fabric from the donation boxes last night, I came across this red, and all this white.....so I pulled some more of my blues together. And......V'IOLA! The rotary cutter just took over......and now: another quilt in the making!


In my process of going through my boxes of donations last night, I pulled out this gem. AND.....there was 3 1/2 YARDS of it!!!!! Hmm.....maybe a border? Part of the backing for Blue Ridge Beauty??? Or maybe it'll just be admired on the shelf for that next perfect project??? ;0) Nah....it'll find itself in a project soon!


Happy Monday!!!
OH! And, for those of you who had a day off today for MLK Day, I hope you enjoyed your day! I'm not quite sure why our school doesn't take vacation on this day. Anyway, today was actually a decent day; the kids were (thankfully) decently behaved for once.

And that floral is pretty!!! Great find!

Looks like a fun piecing project!

You just had a finish, a new start seems only right. Love the blue flowers for Blue ridge Beauty. The gold accents are great.
I saw a math quilt and though of you: http://www.bethanyquilts.com/uncategorized/3d-math-matrix-part-1/
