Quilters are the BEST !!!!!

 I had 2 wonderful packages arrived this week !

Midwinter red fabric and a DJ block !!!!!!

 Doreen of  Aunt Reen's Place  Blog sent me this DJ block that she made for me !

It is A -13  Starlight Star bright . Just look at the amazing piecing she did making  this block!
For those of you that are new to my blog Doreen is making herself a DJ quilt in pink & browns and she is making me DJ blocks too.  You can see my DJ board  " MY SISTER'S MIRROR " on the side bar of my blog. I am the luckiest girl in the world to be able to have my very own DJ quilt !

Kathy  blog was so nice to send me this Midwinter Reds fabric she had in her stash.
Can't wait to make something with it

Thank you Doreen and Kathy !!

Quilters are just the most generous people in the world. Wouldn't you agree ?

Happy Sewing !

Midwinter Reds Cozy quilt is a finish

Hi !

Hope everyone had a great weekend !

I finished my Midwinter Reds Cozy quilt .  Happy Dance !

The quilt measures 43" x 43".

I had some leftover French general solid red 2 1/2" strips that I used for the thin red border and I had just enough of the floral for the outside border :-D

So this quilt top was made with only fabric from my stash .

I went to my local Ben Franklin store and found this perfect backing  fabric on their flat fold table for only $5.99 a yard . It is a Anna Griffin " Fleur Rouge " fabric !  SCORE !

I also found a 1/2 yard of the  my border fabric on Ebay  that I will use for the binding.

Now I am all set ;-)

Happy Sewing
