New Quilt Top and 2nd Completed UFO

It feels nice to begin a new year with a new quilt, which will be a retirement gift for a friend.

(7) Name: 'Quilting : Scrappy Cats Quilt Pattern
Here's the pattern image and if interested, you can find it here.

While all the piecing is complete, there are still stars to applique, button eyes to sew, and embroidered faces to apply!  What labor, but a labor of love!

Since I prefer piecing to applique, I designed a new setting triangle.

It also feels nice to finish up a second UFO, which just needed some binding!  I joined the Crafty Quilter, to work on a UFO each month, but I guess if I finish more than one, that's good too!

 This patchwork quilt started when my niece, Briana stopped by with some fabric she'd just purchased.  Together, we worked on her first quilt, but then it got put away for a few years and never completed.  I'm excited for her to stop by and pick it up!

P.S.  The new blog header was made using instructions from Blissfully Domestic, and Picasa.
