Flimsy finish.......

Anymore, I allow myself to feel a finish is one step closer when I have it at the flimsy stage.

This is Bonnie Hunter's "Jared Takes a Wife" pattern.  Bonnie was teaching this class in Bedford, PA last July and I drove the hour west to sit, sew, and visit.

Today I got the flimsy done.  It will be for Abby... my owl girl.

Oh, and the picture of Kevin???? He was working on a bag for his  Civil War re-enacting.  I just had to share he looked so cute.

Now to piece the backing.

Quilty Hugs!

Love the top! I kind of feel things are "finished" at that stage - with all the cutting and trimming and piecing, it's a huge achievement to go from lots of pieces to one big one lol

Jared takes a Wife is a beauty. Great colors.
I kind of consider it done when the top is done. Probably because piecing is my favorite part.
Happy stitching

Hi, Nancy. The turquoise in that top really adds a bit of pizzazz--very pretty! So glad to hear that Sandy didn't affect you. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
best, nadia
