ketchup work!

I've been playing catch up today
(why is catsup a corect spelling?? it still looks way odd to me)

My daughter's class actually has a little basket that has a picture of a ketchup bottle and they add work in there they didn't finish and friday, they take it home to finish if they don't finish it during the week.

so anyways, I've just been making backings, cutting batting and binding etc for quilt tops that are done already

I did play with EQ7 this morning and thought of the 4" tree embroidered blocks I made, and thought of a log cabin block with white on the inside and matching seasonal strips on the outside.
I just don't have any white or white-on-white fabrics, only some off white fabrics, so.... should I use that or wait?

Beautiful block and I think the white and off-white will work together!

Love the colors in this block. I would probably stick with white and white on white fabrics for the strips. It really makes it pop.
