Buzzsaw Beauty(s)

I squeezed in some sewing time, and finished up this 60 x 60" Buzzsaw Beauty quilt top.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I've been pondering adding a border, but don't think I will.  I have a friend interested in adding this to her collection, so I might ask her if she wants a border to make it larger.

Initially, I was going to include the the paler block in the above quilt top, but I got to thinking that overall it was just too light, not enough oomph to go with the other blocks.  This block is 30 x 30", and I think I'll order some more blue for a border.

One good think about being a caregiver, I have plenty of time to ponder, between sewing sessions.
May your bobbins always be full,


  1. Both are beautiful Jan, but I think you made the right decision, that intense and gorgeous blue would have just overshadowed those gorgeous lights. I hope you're holding up O.K., it's really important right now to take care of yourself.

  2. That is seriously beautiful!

  3. I like the bolder blues myself. Very nice!
