Prior to all of this,
it was all gravy
on the quilty side of life too.
I was just in the mood to abandon
all the current projects
and follow along with a
small mystery quilt that Lori,
at Humble Quilts, was organizing.
21" x 23"
I tweaked it a bit, by adding a border,
but it was great fun to sew along.
It was the perfect diversion I needed.
Next in the gravy boat
All those 3" nine patches I had adquired

The top is done on this one.

pattern by Janet Stone
and offered by The Quilt Show.

I love how it turned out.
Just a little bit more gravy.
Here it is.

I can't believe that this one is finally done!
What a feeling.
Hope you're riding the gravy train too.Until Next Time-
