. . . anything but "blue"

Surrounded by blue for most of the last week, I have been anything but "blue"
2 lovely cushions with the scraps
some beautiful fabrics
my 'best mate'
some stipple action
just a little bit of binding to go
and . . . vwola!  A beautiful Blue Quilt, and I'm feeling happy because as of right now, HOLIDAYS are here for 2 weeks!!!

Woohoo happy holidays!
Your stippling looks amazing and I always love a bit of stripey binding.

Yeah for the holidays, mornings of staying in PJ's until half the day is over and no rushing about. I hear ya!!! Love the blue action this week Annie - go the stipple!

Beautiful quilt and I'm slightly shrek colour over your machine quilting - I can't do it! My daughter said the same thing today, no more school for two weeks, but then she has her two darlings around for her sins, lol.

How lovely! I am a fan of that Kaffe Fassett design so much so that I have a few colourways of it for special projects. :-) Your quilt looks so snuggly and the plain colours really make the pattern ones stand out.

Ooo in case I haven't told you, I have a new blog as I ran out of photo space on my old one. There is a link from my old one.

Looking forward to seeing a rainbow of stitchery from you over the holidays, Annie.... enjoy!

BTW - I ate enough cake for the two of us today. Thought of you and ate some more.... just for YOU, of course.
