WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT ?

AT LAST... A FINISH !
Here is "Anything Goes"
as I named it

65"/85"
Hand pieced (English Paper Pieced) and hand quilted
Started in 2001 (among sooo many other projects)
it is adapted from a pattern published by Australian P&Q Vol.8 Issue nr.9

I changed the colors settings, using dark ones for the big elongated hexagons
and a light beige for the short ones


Whew ! Feels gooood !

I counted more than 20 flimsies in my "shame on you"cupboard,

So.... on to the next one !

;>)

A saying for today :
Be not afraid of going slowly,
Be afraid only of standing still...
