I pieced the bulk of my disappearing nine patch top together, but when I laid the fabric out for the black and red border it just looked too black. So, even though I bought a binding and backing fabric to go on the quilt, I am currently awaiting a yard of dark brown to complete the top.
In the meantime I have started working on yet another small quilt I want to finish by Christmas. This one is a monkey wrench design in some religious fabric I got in one of those fabric shop grab bags. It's really not my style, but I think I know someone who would appreciate it, so I am piecing away. Pictures to come soon!
