    Estate Sale Finish

    I picked up sort of a kit at an estate sale. The letters were already fused onto the background, some were stitched, most were not. The "kit" included background fabric for the picture blocks, so I thought, why not finish this? Creating all the different picture blocks was fun, they were created using my stash of scraps with fusible. I found the sashing and border fabrics on sale. So, for an orphan, it turned out fairly well.

    very nice, great work
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
