Squirrels finished! As these were part of my Finish-Along pledge, I am particularly pleased. Since this started out as a sort of joke quick-quilt with fabric that was hopelessly ill suited to being a jelly roll (headless reindeer, anyone?), I am particulary surprised it was ever finished. It is now on the little-bed-small-people-sleep-in-from-the-middle-of-the-night-when-they-really-need-mama.

Squirrels finished1Very very snuggly minky on the back (sort of artificial furry hairy stuff, to use a technical term). I am not convinced this makes a very sensible back, but it washed ok. I quilted this on Ms E’s wonderful longarm, and I had such fun just going for it on a Sunday afternoon.

Squirrels finished3Fuzzy pictures, but at least you can see where I got the inspiration for the chalet.

Squirrels finished2Squirrels “raw edge appliquéed on” which is the technical term for: quick and dirty. Hurray for my first finish of the year, even without very nice pictures.

xx Happy squirelling, JJ
