    My front door wreath

    Every year I've hung a wreath on our front door, and the one I used the last couple of years looked, well, not welcoming at all.
    So I decided to make a wreath to replace it, but out of fabric. It's about 18" square, has 121 pieces, and was certainly a paper piecing challenge
    I enjoyed making it and was glad to see the parts of my brain required to make it, still worked
    Maybe it's kind of weird, a cloth wreath on the door, but this is kind of known as the house where the weird dog and flower lady lives, so it's not unexpected!

    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    I think its perfect! It looks beautiful on your front door.

    I'm about to try a Judy Niemeyer Quilt. Talk about a paperpiecing challenge. Hope my brain is up to it!.

    How charming! I don't think it's at all weird. What does that say about me?
