"I keep my end tables full of needlework and quilting so I don't have to dust them."
I've completed three more blocks from my "Satchels" quilt. I was feeling pretty good about myself until I counted how many I have left to do. Only 60 more to go....whoohoo! At least I find applique relaxing. Last night I went to book club and was able to stitch as I listened to the comments on some wonderful books.
All of my blocks so far are made with Kaffe fabric. My favorite lines in his designs are always the "Millefiore" (pronounced: Mill-fee-OHR-ee). Millefiore is an Italian word meaning "Thousand Flowers. It's an original technique used by glass makers, then adopted by polymer clay artists. I love when the design is transfered into fabric.

I'm also working away on my Fun and Done quilt. The first 3 rows are completed with middle sashings.
