Just back from being quilted

I love this quilt!  Debby Brown quilted it this week using wool batting and a beautiful pattern
she does freehand across the quilt.  The wedding was in Sept. but I think they'll still be happy
See that nice thick wool batting on the right side, this quilt is gonna be cozy!
to receive this wedding gift :0).  I think I'll wait until after Christmas to put the binding on though.  Happy Sewing, Kim

BOM bloggers

This block reminds me of a color blind test.

Are you following along with the bloggers BOM?  This months block is really fun but I did not use enough contrast.
Should I make another or just leave well enough alone?  Happy Sewing,
