Valentine's Day Already?

Well, not really, but I was taking down my red/green Christmasy stuff while I was sewing up this quilt. I couldn't help but think of chocolate and raspberries. Yum! The crew thought Raspberry Mocha might be a good name. I agree considering that the dark brown fabric is Espresso Kona Cotton.
The pink squares were all from another quilt square swap. (Can you tell I'm trying to sew up what I have?) I just hate to see all these squares sit around while I plan new projects. Too easy for me to do, though.
Alas, I see that this picture highlights a few of my stippling blunders. Oh well, I'm learning.
And speaking of stippling and machine quilting, I'm really excited about an upcoming class that I'm taking at the end of the month. Elsie Vrendenburg http://www.quiltsbyelsie.com/ local to me and she is teaching a machine quilting class at the LQS. I'm really excited to expand my horizons and better my skills. Seriously, she is amazing.
