Priority Quilt Revisited

I started talking about this quilt nearly a year ago, on August 6, 2009. I brought it back out to see if it could be saved the other day and ended up cutting off the borders and just keeping the center. Then I attached new borders and put some batting in between that and a new backing. It's not really crooked IRL, that's my bad photography. I will quilt the borders, probably folloing the hearts in the fabric, but it needs something else. I'm thinking of maybe putting a pink piping on before I bind it. What do you think? All suggestions are welcome! I don't have much time, need to get this one done.

Some Exciting News!

I got an email from Kathy Shaffer who owns a new little quilt shop in Millburn, Illinois called The Common Thread Merchantile. It's the cutest little shop tucked in amongst beautiful trees in a lovely, calming setting.

She had come across my information at the Village Quilters Guild where Annette Hendricks had been the speaker and I brought my hand dyed fabric to sell. Kathy was interested in carrying my fabric in her shop, so I brought her some of my inventory and it is now available to you through her. The shop is well worth a visit, although currently her hours are limited, so visit her blog for details and directions. I had the opportunity to sit on her porch and enjoy the beauty, and it was very peaceful and inspiring. Thanks, Kathy!
