    Smile My Jeweled Forest Update - Sun 11-13 Pic Heavy!

    Well I have been working up a storm on these 'jewels'. I started with 12, cute but I need more. So I got to 20. It was getting better but still not enough. Got to 30 and just knew I had what I wanted. Laid them out and it just isn't quite there. So now I have 36 precious little trees. Now I am fairly happy. I am thinking maybe 6 across and 6 down with a nice wide border. Then it should be perfect. Not for the bed but maybe a throw or I have a huge blank wall going down my staircase that is begging for some color. The dark blue backround has sparkling stars. It is a Robert Kaufman fabric from JoAnns. Very nice to work with. Home everyone enjoys. My plan is to maybe come in from work tomorrow and put the blocks together.

    Quilts are like friends - they age with you, yet never lose their warmth. Friendship promotes the good and happiness in each other.

    They looked great alone, but that border really makes them pop!

    Love your trees in their Starry, Starry Night surroundings!
    Will be waiting to see how you finish them.
