drat Drat DRat DRAT!

I miss read his schedule...it caught my eye as I was going out the door. He was already GONE from work before I left home...so he got NOTHING from me today. I'm so bummed! I will try to go by and see him tomorrow.




I have been slugging along on the QOV. Gee, I WISH I had started that peacock feather echo LARGER! I think I have at LEAST 2 bobbin changes on EACH pass! SHEESH! I AM getting braver tho...look at my first stabs at FEATHERS! I see a GLIMMER of hope!


I'm not usually drawn to panels. I had seen this on the back of a quilt magazine and fell in love with:
The beluga...(one of my kids LOVED Baby Beluga , a song by Raffi. Oh I'm showing my AGE!)
and the puffins...



This is a border only found on the side of the panel..I will piece that into the back.




around the panel, will be a pioneer braid...


and lastly this border fabric. Isn't it cute? Northcott offers a free pattern on their site. Look for Animals around the world collection. On the right side, there is a downloadable pattern. If you are wanting to try a pioneer braid, Bonnie has one, as well as Quilter's Cache

That fabric is so cute! I'll have to look for it. Enjoy the Super Bowl festivities this weekend. I used to live near Chandler when my son was an infant - YEARS ago.
Hugs,

That last fabric is the one my daughter chose for the curtains in Joseph's room. We are going to try to get them finished this weekend. I think it's going to make great curtains!

You've got some pretty fabric here too! I love all the characters on your map and the border is darling!

I wish my feathers would turn out as nicely as yours are. Great job!
