Phew! I succeeded in repacking all the Christmas decorations this weekend and cleaning up all the remnants of the holidays, including the dust! However, it left my home looking drab and dreary!
One of the things I miss most is the little quilt I made using Kathie's recipe, so I decided to make a replacement that I can leave out year round!
I had previously made two quilts using this border fabric from Jo Morton and had just the right amount leftover to whip up this little mat.
This is the coordinating table topper that rests on top of my dining table year round. The little mat will be on my antique sideboard.
Then there is this Kathleen Tracy designed quilt from Remembering Adelia that will hang on the wall when I retrieve it from display at TOWQS.
It is challenging to incorporate my quilts in my southwest, territorial home!
I don't particularly like southwest fabrics nor quilt designs, but love to display quilts.
However, my home is so eclectic! I have a mix of French and American oak antiques mixed in with carved Spanish Colonial pieces and wrought iron.
After all it is a home, not a decorator's showcase.
Today, my challenge, after I have the dreaded mammogram, is to find a threesome to create a nice vignette on top of the new addition. I am thinking wrought iron candlesticks or the like.
Joined a doll quilt exchange over at Christine's blog.
I just love to visit her just to see the quilts in her header photo!
Found someone who adores doll quilts and makes them faster than I do!
Visit Monique over at Only Doll Quilts.
She is planning to make her own version of the 'Welcome Wagon' small quilt.
My goal for this week is to finish my Kim Diehl applique quilt!
Then you will not have to hear about it anymore!
