    Latest Addition to my quilt of the month collection to help cover the ugly fireplace!

    Here is August's quilt. I used my lil twister tool and then used the scraps to make 9 patch cornerstones. I used a poly batting to add loft so it might have the illusion of clouds, do you see any clouds? The fabric is Summer Breeze by Moda and a new to me way to hang the quilt with tabs to make it look bigger

    Very pretty and I love the colors.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I always enjoy seeing blues and yellows together, and this is no exception. Nice work!

    Love your blue and yellow twister, so bright and cheerful.

    I have an "ugly" fireplace like the one in the photo. I bought light cement paint and just painted all my grout from the dark color to a lighter cream. LOVE the change in the whole room. Easy to do, not messy, fairly quick. Instant improvement.

    Thanks for the idea - dear husband thinks the fireplace is fine but I find it lacking!
