My Matryoshka

I can't believe it's been so long since my last post. I've been very busy sewing. This is a good thing. Two scrap quilts have been cut out. The center of one is completely sewn. It just needs borders. I walked into one of my favorite fabric stores and found the border fabric in just about 2 minutes. I'm still working on the four patch squares for the other one. As well as sewing quilt tops, I've been making fun small things. I'm involved in several swaps at Swap-bot. These swaps can be helpful for stimulating creativity. Anyway there is a Matryoshka doll swap which lead me to create my own. Yes, they do nest. Some more details need to be added, like some decorative embroidery. Because I'm so pleased with the way these turned out, I'm sure they will multiply in my sewing room, hopefully faster than the dust bunnies.
