And We're Quilting...

I finished the John Deere quilt top last night. I think the part I hate about large quilts is putting borders on. Bending over the table, pinning the stupid things on is back breaking business. But I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, so the pain's worth it. Kind of.

I was going to border it in one of the browns, but then I decided to mimic the blocks all around.
(Sorry about the blurry pictures... it's grey and my camera hates me.)

These are a couple of the last ten blocks with the different fabric in the centre. It was SO difficult to fussy cut these because the fabric was slightly wonky and kept leaning to one side. Hopefully people don't look at it too closely... heehee!

I've since basted the quilt and am about to start quilting. Whee! It never gets old :)

Oh, and Izzy says "What's up?"

She looks like she's pretending to be a bunny... and often falls asleep with one foot up in air like that. She's so freaking cute I want to eat her.

The quilt looks great! My fuzzball will fall asleep on his face with his back feet on tiptoes and his butt in the air....
