seeing squares

First, I have to show off my daughter-in-law's first pieced quilt (all piecing done by her).  Amazing, isn't it?  I'm pretty proud of her.  They lived in our home for a few months and . . . BING! she caught the bug! . . . imagine that.

We just finished hand sewing the binding.  You can learn more about the pattern here.



Love the back.



Here's what's on my sewing table this week.  Table runners with my coveted "witch's undies".


And I'm making a couple more with these cute guys for the grandkids, who might not quite understand the undies . . .



Butterscotch chip (name chosen) squares are ready to sew together . . .



My best fabric find for the week are these "etching building plans" for pillow shams.
