Goodbye April

A Lovely Year of Finishes Phew! I got 'er done. I finished my goal of sewing the blocks for the pickle dish/ horny toad quilt. They still need lots of TLC. I am going to fuse applique the heads, legs, and tails, and add embellishments such as eyes, spines, and beads... but for now they are happily sewn as blocks. It was a pain in the keister today, completing the blocks. I had printed and enlarged the pattern for the arcs 4 years ago, and sewed the arcs at retreat. I still have the QNM articles, and can see the pattern on their website, also. However! No pattern for the outer edges. So I made one and tweaked it to fit. It was not a perfect fit. it is close enough, and when the limbs and quilting are added, they will be great little horny toads. Here are the blocks: What have you worked on that you were glad to finish?

  1. Oh wow, these are going to be great horny toads! I'm surprised you got so many done with the pattern drafting and everything. I can't wait to see these toads come "alive".
