While I was doing some ‘general clean up’ in the sewing room (that’s when I found the kits, oh dear)…..I came across this….Nice People, Nice Things…..I really should do some more of this one I think!…it is a quilt as you go…..each block has a front and a back, the saying being the back……

Happy Thursday, take care, keep safe

  1. The saying is on the back? Too sweet for the back. What's on the front?

  11. Peg, it's beautiful,I hope you decide to keep going with it... it's somewhat the 'mental' commitment with long-term projects, or those that just have a lot of work. I am very inspired by seeing this I must say, as I have the pattern set & it's on my Plan to start doing the stitcheries for it next year.

    And for readers not familiar with this quilt, yes there are stitcheries on both sides, it's a wonderful design

  15. That's one of my 'almost brought it's Peg, when the mind tries to be logical & the heart begs for it. I got Life is Beautiful instead - I love Helen's designs. You threads look great. Tracee xx
