I'm happy to say that the Harry Potter quilt is finished and I thank guild member, Steff, for sending me a photo of it from our guild meeting's Show&Tell. This was (and still is) a free pattern that Lorna @ Sew Fresh Quilts offered as a quilt along in 2019. The background was new fabric, but everything else came from the scrap totes. I have to thank Dawn who sent me all my 'face' fabrics as my pink(ies) were rather weak.
This is for my youngest grandson, but he has to wait for it after the Empire Quiltfest Show in April. The show is just up the road from where they live, so maybe he will come see it hanging.
Since I have finished off four projects this month and progressed another four, I am treating myself to something new. This was another one of my orders that was in that 'missing' mess. There should have been 4 yrds of the off white, but only 3yrs. The light floral was suppose to be 2 yrds, but only 1 yrd. AND there was suppose to be four charm packs, but only 3. I can make do with this for the Mystery QAL THE TWIST with Carole. There is extra fabric here, but I had plans for another project with the amount ordered - that makes for a change.
I'm frantically quilting my last piece for the quilt show and hope to finish up today as well as get the binding on for some hand sewing. Then I need to get all my pieces photo'ed and paper work completed to send in my registrations by Feb 1st - they aren't due until the 15th, but I want them on their way early - DONE!
