It feels so good to have this done. That makes two UFO's and two HSY's I've turned into finished tops since I started quilting again. I'm determined to whittle down those sidebar lists! Especially since I've been looking at the UFO's list and discovered there are at least two I remember - but haven't found yet - that aren't listed. I sure hope there aren't any more!
I'm fairly confident this top lies flat - I just don't have a big enough space to stretch it out in. It is a big quilt - 76" square. I will finish it with "big stitch" utility quilting using DMD "Cebelia" #437 in a Baptist Fan pattern.
I have four wonderful handmade star "buttons" that came with the kit - one for the crow's eye and three for buttons on the snowman. They are fragile and not heat resistant, so I will sew them on once the top is quilted and bound.
I think it is time to start some reorganization before I resume work on the Civil War Diaries quilt. I'm heading upstairs with some sacks to start going through books. My spinning group meets at the library on Wednesday mornings, so I can take them to donate right away.
