A finish

Now that the house has sold, I can mess up my sewing room again.   I always thought I wanted a nice and tidy room but I now know that I work better in chaos.  Winking smile  

I hadn’t realized that it had been over a year since I last worked on my Wool Garden block of the month.  And…I only had one more block to go.   So, I got busy this week and finally finished it. 

006-1

My friend, Nadine, had changed the border and I really liked what she did, so I borrowed her template for the scallops and now it’s done!   

It sure feels good to get back on track!

I'm with you - give me chaos and I can create quite happily, tidiness - nothing!
Love your quilt and your blog.

Oh, I love this quilt. The rickrack is such a nice addition on the block edges. I never would have thought of doing that but it works well.
