You can see the cute cat backing here.
And another view that shows off the quilting better.
My daughter made this quilt to give to her daughter Natalie's teacher. Here's Jenny's thought on giving this quilt to her 3rd grade daughter's teacher. "I don't usually make quilts for the kid's teachers, but I feel like they really deserve it this year!" I so agree with that. And, I am so happy I had retired long before this pandemic closed schools.
Here's the UFO I finished today. The blocks came from a 2009 swap at the Faithful Circle Quilt guild. Part of them were used in this top and the more kid friendly were put in the top shown here. I'm hoping to get this top quilted this week. I happen to have a perfect backing for it.
On to my goals for last week. Not too bad, really.

So that is what is on my list for this week. I've also been doing a lot of picking up and putting away in the studio. I've been pulling fabric rather indiscriminately so I spent a short time restacking the fabric piles. I have quite a few more to do so that section of my shelving will look spiffy. I still need to put more things away (or possibly some will be thrown away or recycled.) Lastly, vacuuming the floor and cleaning a bathroom or two before Sharon arrives.
I'm linking up with my regular parties: Oh Scrap!, Monday Making, Design Wall Monday, and To Do Tuesday. Join the fun and see what folks are making across the Internet. Do you get way too many ideas from surfing like I do? I keep photos of quilts I really like. Every once and a while I go back over my file of ideas and get rid of duplicates, ideas I've used, ones I'll never use and then keep the rest. My poor computer is getting old and stuffed. I still have some room but not as much as I'd like to. So throwing away unwanted ideas works for me.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
