New Favorites Added....

I finally got around to adding links to Christmas Cottage swap group blogs that I have been following. It has been so exciting to meet members of my group on line through their postings!

Hello to new additions: Bekka, Anyone Can Quilt, Diddle Daddle Designs, Em's Scrapbag, Sunshine Yellow, Messy Karen, Loft Creations, and Quilter Polly. I had visited many of their sites before but hadn't listed them on my blog....


I have been working on Sue. I decided to just stick with the pieced border. I will use the green that backs the oval to make the binding. At first, I thought the piece would be too small but as I finished it, I decided it will be just right. I still have to hand quilt it. That will be for another day.

i like the pieced border and was curious to see what you'd decide about this piece. sunbonnet sue brings back so many fond memories. my grandmother made a quilt for me featuring SS, and i've meant to bring it out to look at it, but sort of have no idea where to begin the search! and was hoping that i'd have a girl (21 days to go!) so she could use the quilt too, but that [the sex] is still up in the air!

I love the way you decided to finish this piece. I think much bigger would have had Sue lost in the middle, so this is just right!

oooo yes.. I love meeting all these new friends too. :-) Of course some I knew before.. but some are new to me too.

Sue looks perfect.

I love how it came together. My one and only tattoo is of sunbonnet sue. I will do a post on it one day:)

I can't wait to see what sue looks like when she is done. I love her.
