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,
