It's a Race

Look at the top of this pic and you can see a fuzzy tail. I tried to take a none cat picture but this is as close as I got!
 Yesterday I finished one side of my paper pieced border. This is going to be the last border before the binding. My goal is to do one side a day. That gives me the rest of the week to get this done, then sandwiched.
I'm kind of looking forward to quilting this quilt. I can't wait to see it done and get another UFO off my list.

(I find it odd that when I that a picture, my feet always show.)
He's at it again! Fabric must be laced with catnip.
I also worked on my Halloween quilt. I added windows, a door and a pediment above the door. What? You never seen a bat pediment? You have now!
I need to embroider a few things to this quilt and add some more applique before adding the now completed stars. If I can keep the fur-ball off the quilt it would be so much easier!

I'm loving how this quilt is turning out. I love these colors. I don't really care for all the strings that the homespuns leave behind. I'm constantly picking off threads and strings. But I think it's turning out fabulously. I'll just need to run a sticky lint roller over it at all times.

I'm off to start my day!
Take care, Brandie

I love the vine borders on the top quilt.....I can't wait to see the whole quilt....toes are pretty....LOL. I can't wait to see the whole Halloween quilt....I agree homespuns are beautiful, but they do shed.

If it's like my house, you'll need to lint-roll just to get rid of the ambient cat (and dog) hair.

That quilt is so fun!!
