Merry Christmas All!

I'm issues, and holidays had me tangled up the past couple of months.  Today I'm starting my New Year's resolution to get back to posting at least two times a week.

Since my last post I finished my spider web top.  This was inspired by a vintage quilt in my collection (the black and gray edging), a quilt if Rod K.'s collection (using a different fabric in each "star") and borders on several quilts on the Antique and Vintage facebook site.

 Originally I thought I make a random pieced border...then I thought a piano key border...after seeing the A&V quilts I went for this slated strips.  (Which also took several tries...all pink? all random fabrics? then pink with just a bit of yellow and gray...)

What was I thinking?  Took ten times as long as my original idea!

So here it is...actually started and finished in the same calendar year!
