Last week it wasn't a good period for me and my family...my mind was "disconnected". The only thing that I was able to do was...to turn over the scraps' basket and begin to sew one scrap to an other scrap...two scraps with two others...and so on...without rules...without measures...only sewing on!
So... this is my "COMPULSIVE SEWING" Quilt
It is very special for me because it was my therapy!

So.....I love this little work...

Bubbles bubbles and....more bubbles for the machine quilting in the center and straight lines for the border!! Quick and cute work!
I can't wait to gift it to my sweet Matilde!!!
