Blue

This is a Birthday gift for a dear friend.
A simple table mat.

I loved adding those hand quilted stitches to this piece.
They make the ordinary..
Extra-ordinary!


I'm still using this marvelous mountain of scraps
that doesn't seem to shrink!!!!
I gave some strips to a friend......
I used strips from this mountain for the table topper
and...... 
that I'm actually quilting today!

But that mountain is not a HILL yet!!!!

    I think that scraps are like dust bunnies...no matter how you try to be rid of them, they are always multiplying behind your back :-)
