Tea Party Bears


As usual too much time has passed between posts, and of course I want to promise it won't be so long again next time.... but I'm not ready to make that bet.

I wrote Shirley a note about not knowing where my time is going - and I still haven't figured it out.
I actually finished this quilt around the middle of March, for my Sister. It is the 1st Block of the Month that I ever did. (and have completely finished) It was mail ordered from Australia. Sadly the shop has closed, they had some really cute stuff.
This was my first attempt at machine quilting (other than practice or stitch in the ditch and cross hatching). I did some stippling or meandering (I get them confused). I'm sure I still need lots of practice. I played froggy on one of the blocks 3 times before it was okay. Have you ever ripped out stippling? It's not something I would choose to do in life. :) But my Sis is not a quilt judge and was very touched and pleased that I spent so much time on it and wanted her to have it, so that's all that counts.
This is the Back of the quilt and a closeup of the label. I thought why does a label have to be square? So I made it to match the theme on the front. :)
Well I guess I better go finish my great grandson's quilt so I will have more pictures to post.
Hope everyone is doing well and I will try to catch up with each of you soon.
