A Little Sewing

 I've actually managed to find some time to hide away and get some sewing done and at last I've got a finish to show !




My Vintage New York Beauties from the book 'Radiant New York Beauties' by Valori Wells.  A fan of paper piecing I am not (!), but I'm glad I kept at it as the end result is worth all the frustration!

Like lots of quilters I've been collecting selvages, don't know why or what I thought I would do with them, but at least now I have something to collect them in (VBG!) A fun bag to make and too pretty to keep hidden away I think !

The New York quilt is so pretty. I wish I could quilt, I probably could, but not enough time in the day! You have a lot of talent that's for sure!
