Easy being green! and blue!

To fulfill my obsession with small stars, I put together a bunch of charms I had of Kaffe, and picked out some of my favorite greens and blues to put this quilt top together...

It goes together very quickly and easily. Although I should be binding...
I have a lot of binding I need to get to today also.


Need a great Xmas gift idea?
check these out.

When Cheri came by the other day, she very sinfully brought me a variety of Vosges chocolates.
I am putting away quite quickly, the Black Pearl bar.
black sesame seeds
and dark cacao

(and by "PUTTING AWAY" I don't mean in a drawer....)
it means nobody else is getting any... ;-)

they come highly recommended...

LOL -- I just came from Cathy's blog! Kaffe and chocolate may be the Christmas craze among quilters! I love your quilt top! It looks like something from one of Kaffe's books. Well done!

Thanx so much for posting the link. I have been working at the local office ever since the 'report' came out. This is NOT OK...Women's health should not be a political issue.

PS LOVE the quilt!

Those little stars are great!
PS You should try to find the Vosges bar with the cardamom pods. Oh, yum!

Chocolate and quilts go together, this sounds so gourmet! Love the quilt on the wall, what fun colours.

Thanks for the mammogram link. I posted it to Facebook. I currently have 3 friends who found breast cancer on their first mammogram.

Wonderful quilt with stars!
Signed the petition - when I went in at age 36 with a lump - NO MAMMOGRAM was ordered, I was sent on my way. Went back 6 months later with same lump that had grown and was then Stage 3. Surgery, chemo and radiation and lots of years later I am so blessed to still be here. Trust your own instinct regarding your body.

Mary said...

That's going to be one beautiful quilt!
