Monday Making

Remember my "H" quilt?

I've stalled a few times with this one
as decisions come up.

First there was the border to figure out.
Then....how to quilt???

The borders are on.
Mustard cotton is from a table cloth
found at the thrift store!

The bigger appliqued circles
are vintage yo-yos given to me a long time ago!

I LOVE re-purposing and using 
someone else's leftovers.

ALL the H's are quilted!
Yeah!
I had a hard time deciding HOW to quilt them...
but once I got going it took less time then I anticipated.

Now I'm working on the border.
It will be QUITE a while before THAT part gets done.
I am mostly ECHO quilting the vine and circles.

What are YOU making this week??
