Top of the Woodland

It's done!
Well. At least the top is. It still needs to be quilted so it's being packed up and shipped off to Mom. She can do a really neat, free-motion leaf pattern that I think will be just perfect for this one. Plus it's way too big for me to attempt myself.

It's not quite a full queen-size, but it's close. Once I'd put on the borders I'd cut the other day, I discovered while the length was perfect, it wasn't quite as wide as I wanted. I didn't have much fabric that would work for some extra width... except for this pretty floral.
It's actually the fabric I'd bought for the backing. It was in a clearance bin, and had a few  extra yards than what I needed, so I took the whole lot. I'm glad  I did as it allowed me to put an extra six inches on each side to make it wider.

I am so pleased to have this one off my plate, and on to Mom's. (Though her plate is pretty full too so I don't expect to see it back for a few months.). It means I can move onto other things.
As well as add some new scraps to the various scrap block bins. The strip bin is actually almost full, and when it is, I think I'll start building some log cabins.

And before I forget... the last time I posted about this quilt, a couple of you noted on the absence of my Snooperviser. I promise, he was there, I was just able to get a picture without him for once. And of course, he helped this time too...
...he brought along a mousie friend to tests for bouncability...
... and of course, rolled all over it to discern it's general comfort level. After all.. a kitten's work is never done!

He is a very dedicated Snooperviser! Does he contract out his work? Lovely quilt, I am sure your mom will do a wonderful job of quilting.

Looks like he is saying, "yes. This one is good."
