I finished Barbara's little basket quilt.
There was a lot of space between the dolls so I tried to make it look like a curtain -- just pretend they are little chorus girls. I sewed the binding on with the LA and it is ready for the hand stitching.
I now have my Stars for a New Day which was the 2009 BOM at The Quilt Show on the LA. It was designed by Sue Garmon. It is a large quilt but, at least, there are lots of different blocks.
