Antique Tiles

Richard and Hunter are feeling better but now Andrew and I are sick! It has been a long time since I have been this sick. I called my friend Lisa the other day and she did not even recognize my voice at first. Today I feel better than I have for several days, so hopefully I am on the mend. Andrew seems to be a lot better too.

Speaking of my friend Lisa, we send a lot of little packages back and forth. Fabrics, patterns, and things like that. Well in my box of goodies that I got the other day was this cute little bracelet! Isn't it so cute!?! I really like it!
I did manage to sew down some binding on this quilt while on the couch or in the bed. I know it is bright but I still like it. The pattern is called "Antique Tiles" very simple to do.

I ended up putting a white binding on it, because I did not have anymore of the orange fabric left. That is going to be the problem with a lot of my quilts. The tops have been made for many years and I don't have some of the same fabrics so I will just have to use some of the plain background fabrics or make scrap binding for some of the scrap quilts.

Now I think I am off to take a nap!

The quilt is colorful and looks like a fun pattern to do.

Hopefully you will be back 100% in just a few days.

Oh the bracelet just fits you to a "T".

I sure hope you all get to feeling better soon. My! you have another project completed. It is pretty. You will have them stacked to the ceiling when they are quilted. I like the bracelet

Hope you are feeling better by now. One of the first quilts I made was a Antique Tile (no half square triangles!! LOL) I love your colors and the white is wonderful for the binding, it is like a frame.
