Deadlines

I know you've seen this quilt top before...
but Now it's DONE!!!.......Thanks to a deadline!
Aren't deadlines GREAT????
Wonder what we'd get done without them???

I added a little bit of embroidery.
I think it adds a nice TOUCH!
 
The center house block for this quilt has been in my orphan drawer.
It came from Applique Addict during one of the last two
neighborhood blog parties I hosted.
 
Isn't blogland NICE???
Marjorie sent me an extra block
just BECAUSE!!!
 
Like I said.
There are LOTS of sweet people in blogland!
It's been fun getting to know each and every one!

The back was pieced with what I have on hand.
I'm happy to say I haven't needed to buy fabric for a while!
Guess that says something about my stash, huh?

It's quilted and READY for the
BRIDE to be!
 
This quilt features LOTS of scraps
in my "dump and sew" style!
Gotta love those SCRAPS!
