It's a Bright, Brisk, Moon Lit Night

Yippee!! It's finished, the top - that is. Finally - Only a month late. I'm probably the last one to post their "Come Over to My House" BOM 2009 quilt. This was a free project from Forevergreen Quilts and I really enjoyed making it. I had to stop working on it to do some orders and took time out for a cruise. then there were my mistakes and do-overs . . . but, it's done!

It was a challenge finding a way to hang it temporarily, but I wanted to see what it looked like and I couldn't hold it up and look at it. I taped it to a yard stick, so it is hanging with a little drape in it which causes a bit of distortion. It's actually pretty square. I'm amazed, and pleased. Now I just have to sew the back on it and do quilting stitches or something. I'll have to consult my quilter friends. I've never made a quilt before. BTW, the triangles are really difficult!

Here is a close-up of the dog house. Someone is at home, and I think it's the first time tonight. See the paw prints all over the black boarder?

The more I look at the dog house, the more it bothers me. I'm going to have to fix it, somehow.
