I DO finally have a finish. This is actually a bonus finish! It's one of the leftover blocks from this quilt, which I quilted to make a little tv tray mat. My take on Kathy Doughty's Vintage Spin was so much fun. I may seriously have to make another one.
This is the quilt I finally finished. I got stalled on it somehow and put it aside for awhile. But now it is finished and I have to say I like it! It will be going to our nephew.
The backing is a tone on tone and the binding is a fun orange "space" fabric. Both are from Connecting Threads.
There are fun fabrics in it that make me smile.
And plenty of pretty ones, too. Lots to see and enjoy. I think he will like it!
Speaking of see and enjoy - here are a few pictures of our baby chicks. They arrived last Thursday and it has been really hard not to spend too much time out there enjoying their antics! They are growing so fast and have already begun to get their wing and tail feathers.
The picture on the upper left is the little box they traveled in, and the next two are soon after they moved into their much larger quarters. The one on the lower right is today and you can see if you click on the picture to enlarge it that they have changed quite a bit in just a week. Exciting stuff!
And lots to see and do outside, too. It's no wonder I haven't gotten a lot of quilting done! I do love this time of year when everything is doing its best to show off the prettiest blooms.
Oh, and the lower left photo is our neighbor Midnight "helping" me tie up cucumber plants. The yarn was just too much for him to resist!
I hope there is plenty going on in your corner of the world that is making you happy. Because. The Lord has given us a lot that is good, even when it looks like bad might be winning!
Hugs and kisses,
