A Little Finish


Yes, I shoved that fat cat off and finished up 'Tucker'.  The button is on the side bar and you will have to search for the 3 parts, but this works up so quickly.  And you don't have to use those tiny 1.5" squares, use a 2" or 2.5" and you still get a really cute wallhanging or runner.


This is the back - a Barbara Brackman 'Civil War Jubilee' collection -  this is Lincoln's Legacy. Quilted with a light grey Metler thread top/bottom with my walking foot.  The binding - a scrap we found when cleaning the shop and it kept getting tossed from one chair to the other.  I finally put it in my pocket and gave it a home.


A little finish gave me time to play for a bit.  I was having closing the shoe tote for the HSTs (bonus triangles), so I made up over 30 pinwheels - just enough clean out right now so I can close that tote.  Yes, I'm boxing some of my block play which will head out to Sarah's group once I fill it over the next couple of months.


I hit up another tote that was rather stuffed - my kitty fabrics.  Our quilt guild will be collection pillowcases next meeting for a local charity, so I best get started.  These are a variety of prints from Connecting Threads' "Parlor Pets" and Studio E's "Witty Kitty" - 2010 and 2011 - time to move them on.  I like to use the 'Hot Dog' pillow case pattern which you can find for free all over the internet.

Some little finishes to fit into the day,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  4. The Tucker is great but it was just as pretty with a cat on it :). That's a great pile of fabric for pillowcases.
