Whooping Up Two Finishes
I am so happy to say that the poor little Gail Pan block (Splendid Sampler) has finally been completed. This was my last 'Let's Book It' project and the wee thing kept getting pushed to the back of the table for far too long. I was going to make a scrappy patch border, but when I pulled my scrap binding drawer to look for a possible binding to use - well those scrap bindings went into the border as well as binding. A Harbinger of Spring! It is miserably cold here, a little bit of happy for the wall.
And the BIG finish - Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts' Mod Bear Paw pattern has come to life. I just love this pattern and after the Holidays plan to make another. The only fabric I bought for this was the gray (which I actually bought for something else and didn't like it for that) - everything else came off the shelf or out of the scrap bins. Even the extra wide backing was something on the shelf for a very long time. My long armer (thanks Barb) did a tight, close meander in a honey brown - simple so the pattern could do the 'speaking'. BEAR will be going to my daughter which is good because I've had a lot of requests that this one appear in a few area shows.
I just have to finish up the last of the quilting and then machine bind my granddaughter's quilt and my list for the year is complete. WHOOPING it up with Sarah today.
