Yippee

I can't believe it.  After 5 years Henrietta Whiskers is finally done.  The last quilting stitch was done on Tuesday night.  The binding was finished last night.  I got up early this morning and put her in the washer and dryer.  And now....



I quilted around the applique and then cross hatched the balance of the quilt.  It is now hanging on the wall in the living room.  Hubby says it is his favorite quilt.  So glad to have this quilt finally finished.


I received the patterns for January's blocks for the Cabot Cuties II BOM.  Here are blocks 1-11.


These blocks finish at 4 1/2". 

Hubby and I are going for a ride today, out to lunch, antiquing and visiting a few quilt shops.  Hope you have something fun scheduled for today.

Hugs, Cathy

Beautiful finish Cathy and your blocks are looking good. I signed up for Cabot Cuties after seeing your post about the quilt. Have no idea if I will ever get around to making it.
