Autumn Equinox! (Celtic Solstice)
Finale! I just added a black, plain border...and am calling this one done. I like that the solid black is not a plaid...it is not stretchy, and maybe that will give the whole quilt a little stability. I even have a backing ready, whoohoo!!
The finished quilt...I am surprised that Rosie the poodle is not in the middle of this picture.
And...I had a few leftover units. So, I made a little candle mat, and surrounded it with flying geese. I still have a couple little bits and pieces left over, but I think I will put them in the orphan bin for now.
I had a heart yesterday. A fresh post op heart, right from surgery...valve and bypass patient. I really love these patients...a little unstable, a challenge. He is up in the chair eating breakfast today, 12 hours after surgery. (I called to check on him) Love that!!
