What I'm Working On...

...my Cub Pals' Wall Hanging!

I was terrified to un-sew what my friends had sewn!  I think it is *why* the rows sat in the cupboard for almost 5.5 years!  I finally worked up the courage to un-sew~the rows were originally almost 60 inches long.  I wanted the rows to be approximately 30 inches...not as easy as un-sewing at the midway mark.  Some rows had to be taken apart and re-sewn and some even, gasp! cut.

I am loving it so far and I have one more border to make and attach.  :)

The next condundrum will be the quilting...any ideas?!


Here is the post with the full rows and the pattern.  :)

Wonderful row by row! I love the apple one bunches. The quilting design is often the hardest decision, right?

Send it here and I'll stitch it in the ditch for you. If you don't mind my using fine monofilament. I don't mind doing that and you did a couple of my pro bono quilts so I could return the favor.

Will you make a 2nd quilt or placemats with the leftovers then? It looks fantastic! I am sure your friends won't really mind you getting it down to a size that will fit in your home where it could be used rather than setting on the shelf and forgotten.

Cute! Our group did a row quilt, too, and it turned out larger than we expected. Yours is a good solution!

This looks really cute, Pat! What are you doing with the rest of the rows?
