Appreciate all/any help.

Size:  897.2 KBThis Bear Paw scrap quilt seemed to take me forever!! I think about three months. I went thru four bobbins of thread. It was a LOT of work even more than my Dear Jane! I ran out of the green border so ordered more as the backing fabric and will bring a little of it around to the front for the final border. I am very happy with how it turned out. I have NO idea when/how I will quilt it.

    I recently found out my sweet son and his wife of 5 yrs. are expecting

Kevin put a Baptist Fan in the center of the quilt, stitched in the ditch on the outer border, and did a small freehand vine design in the inner border. Thanks for looking!
