Bears are pinned


I can't believe it's been almost a month since I last posted. I got a lot of UFo's completed! I'm going to count them when I am totally finished...there are 6 more pinned and awaiting quilting. This includes the top 'Shadow of the Bear'. Yes, the one I was having trouble with. What a busy month. The quilt shown is called 'Trail Mix', I can't believe how huge it is! Queen sized, aka 'driveway quilt.' My 5 year old grandson thought the white areas were stars and so he decided to go to the moon. He got part of his car seat, the top for my butter churn and away he went! What a delightful imagination that child has. That quilt is now complete and just waiting on a bed.

Your Whirl Into Winter gift goes in the mail today :) I adore this quilt and when I finally tracked down which magazine it came out of I went in search through my "collection" to see if I had that issue. The very LAST BHG magazine I unearthed was the right issue!! next on my scrappy quilt to-do list :)
Happy New Year.
