Carrying on...

Wonder of wonders - it's rubbing off! My 9 year old made a quilt top today. Her design, her stitching. She used about every scrap of fabric from a $1 goodie bag snagged last week at a quilt shop /.

Beautiful!She says it's for her Buildabears for Christmas. It's already prezzie wrapped and tucked away in the closet.

I stitched down the borders on this piece - and added a couple of corner triangles to frame it off. I suppose I could keep going endlessly on the border add-ons. It's African batik center, bordered by Australian chevron stripe - so if I add more fabby from the other continents I could call it a World Quilt??? Hmmmmmm!!!
