Hooray! I finished my project for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap and it is going out in today's mail.
I ended up purchasing a kit from Starr Fabrics at the Marin show over Labor Day weekend. The pattern was free with the charm pack and I didn't have to supply anything but the batting.
I did improvise a bit on the leaves and made them using a trick I learned from my pal Joanie. I fused two layers of fabric together with fusible web and then cut the leaves out. They are quilted onto the top and thus are somewhat free-floating.
The quilt sits in the mailbox as I write, waiting to make its way to ________????? The deadline is Sept. 30th, so I actually beat it by a few days.
Next up: Quilting on the baby quilt I pieced at the Linda Balllard retreat in June which will be easy now that the Bernina is back from her servicing visit. Then quilt the Pumpkin Divas wallhanging for Sarah.
