Finish – Two
This quilt is my first to feature two animals. I intended to enter it into the Opposite Attract contest with SAQA, but I decided it wasn’t good enough, and then failed to get new photos taken for over a month until we got to Dickey Lake in Montana on our drive back from a quick trip out there! It’s a little smaller than my other work, but it was fun, I just don’t think it’s to my usual standard, and it’s a $40 entry fee for up to three works, and I only had this one.
I have been working on a ton of other things though and have two unfinished quilt tops, a quilt from the past that I have remade and am quilting (I’ve never made the same quilt twice until now), another clothing experiment that almost went right. I guess I have a lot to blog about soon!
