a freebie and some gratitude

I have been working on 2 different quilts. I love to have 3 going, like this: 1. Being quilted, 2. being pieced, 3. conceptualizing. It is very relaxing for me as the 3 quilts push all other worries from my mind.
So here is a flimsy (unquilted quilt top) I have finished. It is what I call a freebie since all the fabric came from my scrap box.

The center blocks are all strips of whites and neutrals. I love how the dark neutrals make the entire quilt look really aged. The sashing is a grey mottle, and the border are strips arranged in ROY G. BIV order. I am really happy with how it turned out. This is destined to be a donation quilt for my guild.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in the US. I have been through a tumultuous year but I am so very thankful for my life, my family and friends. I wish for all of you a Thanksgiving Day filled with love and friendship.
