After the feast!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Ours was very quiet, as hubby had to work at 3:00, so we did an early dinner at noon, and I had the whole rest of the day to sew!  Woohoo!

I've nearly put all the blocks and rows together on my it's just a matter of deciding what kind of border to do.

I'm loving everything about this quilt.....first, it has lots of orange, which is my favorite color!  (You just can't help but be happy looking at anything orange!)  Second, it is using the shirtings I have collected, and I am very pleased about that!  I just wish it had made a small dent in the bin, because it's still overflowing!  Sheesh!

I'm thinking about small wedges pointing in for a border.  And definitely a pieced backing of all the shirtings (big blocks, not the tiny pieces....eek!)

Here is a pic of our Christmas Cactus which never blooms on Christmas, but at least 3 times throughout the year!

Ok, back to the sewing room!

Have a great day!



  1. Oh, I love, love, love this! The big and the little webs, the cheddar background! Does this weight a ton? The top I made did (still not a quilt!).

  2. I love your Christmas Cactus!. I haven't been able to get one to bloom for years.

  3. your christmas cactus is beautiful!
