I’m still working my way through finishing up projects. I made one of the four cushion covers and posted a tutorial sharing my method for making an envelope closure with button fastenings. I need to sew buttons to the remaining three covers and stitch them and the binding to the cushion fronts.
I’m making slow progress stitching down the binding to the UFO quilt. I have to confess to getting too absorbed in what’s on TV! I’m doing a bit of a binge watch of ‘The Good Wife’. I nearly gave up in series one but through series two I got hooked by some of the on-going story lines and here I am at episode 3 of series 3! Maybe I will have to switch to audio books if I’m ever going to finish the binding? 😀
What’s my next project? I’m warming to the idea of using a Suzy Q pattern I bought some time ago, ‘Modern Fans‘. At the time I bought a stack of pink and grey FQ bundles from Hobbycraft to use with this pattern. Over the intervening time I’ve snuck out a few of the FQs for other projects so maybe it’s time to make the quilt before all the materials disappear? I’m also feeling an urge to practice FMQ, maybe this quilt top with it’s curved piecing could be a good project to try out some new moves?

Bear Paw blocks are high up on my list of favourite blocks to make. They are relatively quick; there aren’t too many HSTs to trim :-); and they can be arranged in all sorts of layouts. Wendy’s guild, Capital Quilters, has a Bear Paw block logo. In this post she shares some photos of the Bear Paw quilts made by guild members back in 2015. They are planning another Bear Paw QAL for 2022.
