FINALLY finished

It has been over 5 years in the making and I am proud to finally present my "Cabins Cosy" tablecloth.
This is made of of 36 offset log cabins blocks that have a bear paw block in the corner. The bear paws are made up with 1 1/2" half triangle squares that drove me to distraction. I was so disappointed with how each bear paw turned out that I threw them all in a bag in the back of the linen press and promptly forgot about them. Last year I pulled them out and completed the log cabins so this year when my Quilting Bible study group resumed I just had to put it together. The sashing seemed to take forever but finally came together. I then quilted it on Dianne's Long arm machine and frame. Last week I managed to sew on the binding and now it graces my table. I am really happy with ow it turned out and am really pleased that my quilting friends are so encouraging as I Just don't think I would have completed this without their encouragement.

The place mat swap that I have been a part of in the Craft Forum has now finished. here are all 6 place mats I received........

The gorgeous table runner that Sharyn made for me for our July finale.

& the VERY bright table runner I made for Trish. She requested bright fabric with a black back ground. I think I delivered.
