My Halloween Cat mini quilt is finished! I had very little to do to complete it, which makes me wonder why it took me nearly a month to get around to doing it. I suppose that the month of August doesn't quite motivate me to finish Halloween projects the way September and October do.
The quilting gave me a little bit of trouble on Saturday night when I started it. My machine was playing games (naughty Bernice!) and I put it aside rather than get more frustrated. Sunday night I just re-threaded the machine and it worked. Sometimes it's just those little things (and some patience) that make all the difference.
I know Halloween is more than a month away, but since this little quilt was actually finished, I thought it should find its home on my front table along with a pumpkin bowl and my Autumn yo-yo tree. (Plus, the Little Lamb had been there since March so it was time for a change!) I also hung up the Cat Wall-hanging I made last September after we said goodbye to dear RexCat.
Yesterday, I made the label for the Patisserie quilt and put it in the washing machine. I just need to find some nice wrapping paper or a pretty gift bag (I was sure I had one somewhere...) and I will send this one to baby Mollie. The label is simple and inconspicuous (just like me haha) because I didn't want it to stand out too much. Just a little reminder that this quilt was made especially for someone by someone, and not bought in the baby section of Wal-mart!
P.S. I linked up to Fabric Tuesday.
