So the top is ready for quilting, but I need to get batting. JoAnn's has it on sale, so I'll pick some up on Monday. The backing is the same as the border fabric and the binding will be the dark blue that is in the setting strips. Even though I didn't have a plan when I sewed these blocks, I'm really pleased with how this quilt came together. It's going to a friend for her high school graduation...I hope she likes it!
Also today, I made a couple of birthday blocks for an exchange I'm part of... the participants send a piece of fabric of their choice and sometimes choose a particular block.
And since I haven't shared any kitty/quilt inspector photos in a while, here's a couple I thought were cute. I walked into our bedroom and saw that the quilt on our bed was lumpy and out of place.....
So I lifted up the edge to find Smokey is inspecting the underside of my quilts now. He is so thorough in his job, isn't he? No slackers here! This isn't the first time I've found him under there , but it was the first time he posed for such a cute picture. :)
