Bogie inspecting before I sent to quilter.
Last summer I finished a quilt!!  I know it has been a while since I have seen a project through but in the moving process, I found a UFO that I had forgotten about.  It was a class I had taken with my friend Doris back when they were having the annual quilt show in Panama City around the second weekend in Florida.  We would sign up for classes and I would take a Friday off and drive down there and we would meet and take classes together.  Well I took this class and made 18 blocks and then got home and did not know which to eliminate from the quilt so I put it away and went to catching up from taking a day off of work.  I forgot about it and now have found it and finished it.  It is about 60 inches square.  I called it Covenant.  I had posted a picture of it on FB and had lots of suggestions about rainbows and bridges and it made me think of how God made a covenant not to destroy the earth with water and how His love can bring us together.  The quilter, a lady at the Bernenia store in Jackson, suggested a variegated thread.  I have not really cared for the effect of those in other projects but, it worked well in this.  I knew I wanted something with curves as the design was so angular.  I was really happy with the result.

I chose a tape measure fabric with lots of the colors from the front, but I didn't have enough.  So I put red paw print fabric on the sides.

I got it all done it time, but then didn't get my entry in on time for the Pinebelt quilter's biannual quilt show.  I will have to look for another one to enter it in.

Live the day well!
