A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

A thousand swear words often enough.
This flimsy was a love affair in the making the minute I saw it on the cover of  the current issue of Quilty Magazine.
Had. To. Have. It.

"KALEIDO" was designed by fellow Canadian Jeannie Jenkins of Ontario. So nice to see some Canuk talent in the spotlight. The pattern as printed in the magazine tormented me with little errors...which made me think in spite of my decision to refrain from thinking yesterday. I managed to figure it out and though it's one skinny border short of being put on the frame, it's done.

I may never piece curves again, at least not sober anyway.
I love it!
