Vintage Topper for Kathy's Piano










The top is finished, I love it! Kathy does, too, I'm so glad.








 I took these photos at school, 


 
 ~ the pieced backing ~


and decided to share with you folks some of the paper rainbow mosaics we created this past week, 







celebrating March, Spring and St. Patrick's Day~


 ~ Washed and crinkly ~


Happy quilting!

  4. I love vintage fabrics. Always make me feel "at home". I want to be in your class! Those rainbows are so fun and cheery. Someone delivered a rainbow in a jar to our office yesterday. It was a canning jar filled with layers of skittles. Very fun.

  14. It made such a huge difference after you "washed and crinkled" it, that is how it was when I saw it, but when I see the photos, I realize what you were trying to show me. It's just beautiful!

  15. Haha -- at first I was trying to figure out how that rainbow was part of the table runner. I love the little runner -- those fabrics are so pretty. And super cute rainbows too!

  18. naturally like your website but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very
    troublesome to inform the reality however I'll definitely come again again.
