Finishes - Yay!
Finishes always feel good, don't they? Sometimes I feel like I am adrift in a sea of projects and UFOs. So when a finish comes along I feel especially good.
I finished the binding on the Lil' Baskets quilt last night. YAY!!! This quilt is not huge (70" x 70"), but it seemed to take forever. :-)
Now it is ready to go on the back of the couch where the cats will sleep on it and we will get to use it occasionally.
I even like the reproduction back I selected. With all the colors in the baskets, it was hard to choose an appropriate back. I decided on a reproduction that complimented the borders.
This quilt is a nice compliment to the courthouse steps quilt I made a few years ago. Ignore the leaves.. with so many trees it is hard to get a photo without them!
Both will keep us and the kitties warm on cold evenings this winter.
I also started this little penny rug on Halloween... and finished it on Sunday. I have had this pattern for a few years. Glad I finally made it. It was quick and fun!
Have a great week!
