A Finish (Bear Hug)

I got this back from the quilter a few moths ago,and it was time to put some binding on it and call it done. I am so happy with how it turned out. OK I still have to put the label on, but will be doing that tonight.
I was doing some of the hand sewing for the binding at guild and was surprised at how quickly it when. The bit that I did at home seemed to be a lot slower, I think it could be the extra help I get at home.

Love the quilt! I made the "bear paw" pattern for my oldest son, but it still isn't quilted!!! I just love how yours turned out! Such a lovely kitty.

Bear paw is a great pattern and you did an exceptional job on that quilt. Lover the kitty - but she looks like she is having a "Go ahead, make my day" type attitude.

Ahhhh...that picture of the lake just makes me yearn to be by the water, cup of coffee in hand and a comfy chair with nothing better to do than sit and watch the water.

What a lovely quilt - just my type of colours - very warm looking. Growing up I hated brown but now I love it.

What a fabulous quilt -- I love the bear paw pattern and wnat to make one, one of these days.
The look on the kitty's face is too funny! That looks like a "Are you really planning on making me move?" sort of look!

Your quilt is lovely but I'm sure it wouldn't have come together nearly as well without the help. I'm certain of it.

What would we do without those furry helpers! The quilt is wonderful and the kitty is beautiful.

Oh, the look on that kitty's face is priceless! Love it!
The quilt is wonderful too -- and I agree with Karen Dianne, it's the help that makes quilts come together so well! :-)
