It still needs a good pressing and going over cutting spare threads... But I completed my project. Once it's quilted I'll show a better view. I was wrestling the wind, the pups, and my camera to get a snap shot. No patience, I couldn't wait to share.
When I first got it completed I was just sick of it. I must have sewed every square twice because the first time I turn the blocks the incorrect way. But as I pulled it out this evening-- I just loved it.
I can't decide if it's saying ' Grab the picnic basket--- let's go!' Or 'Snuggle up it' s so cold outside...' either way, it's put together. The binding is going to be brown-- to frame the entire piece.
I now have three pieces waiting in the wings for machine quilting. That's my limit. I need to get busy at the machine. Summer weather and a new pup keep me from the machine quilting, but I'll get there.
