November Finish #2

I finally finished the cat quilt, label and all.

This will be donated to the battered women’s shelter at guild next weekend.
I don’t remember when I started this quilt, but the project seemed to drag on forever. It reinforces that it’s better to work on one thing at a time, unless you don’t mind never finishing anything.
It was also a lesson in acceptance. After a lot of back and forth, I ended up quilting it myself. If I had planned it that way I could have quilted it in sections rather than move the furniture out of my dining room to baste it. Going forward, I will quilt all my own charity quilts and plan the construction accordingly. Lesson learned.
Next I’m back to working on the bunny quilt.

    I get permission to use the tables at the library to baste mine. I use the spray baste and it only takes about an hour to do the safehouse size. It helps because I work there, have a key and can do it when they are closed. But I also know that I can use the ones at one of the other libraries as well. Worth a shot! I have a hard time adding borders because ai have no more carpet in my house. If it’s bigger than a safehouse size it won’t fit on my wall. It’s a dilema!

    Congrats on a very pretty finish. The pattern works really well with those novelty prints.
