Another talk and Serendipity

Well after saying that I didn't enjoy giving talks anymore, here I go again with the spare bed covered in stuff!


Why?  My friend Jackie, who is the Regional Co-ordinator for Region 12 of the Guild, asked me to speak at the Regional Day in Port Talbot this Saturday.  I know that job - a few decades ago I was doing it and I know the problems, so I agreed!  No more I say - unless I get an offer I can't refuse!

Sometime serendipity comes into play when fabric or quilts are thrown together.  This time a quilt top that is on the back burner because I can't decide on a border, found itself thrown on a finished quilt -

 
I liked the combination!  Must try and remember and look out that blue fabric - it's an old Laura Ashley dress fabric remnant and I think I have lots!  Finding it though - that's another matter!

Oh yes! That border would be perfect for that top! What luck that you were playing with them!
