Finishing school in session

I have come to realize that I work quite well under pressure . Yep our quilt show is coming up on the 26th of this month so I have been pushing myself to finish off a few projects that have been in the works for quite some time . One such project is the Quilt I mentioned in the previous post , my Henrietta whiskers quilt and I am happy to say it is complete , even has a label , amazed to say the least .
I am super happy as I love this design , BunnyHill designs have such adorable patterns . I don't even want to guess at how many years ago I started this I'm just happy to say it is done . 
 My second finish is the Let it Snow BOM by Buttermilk Basin  , another really fun project which started in 2016 . I have had the top done for a while so had been picking away at the quilting which probably should be a little more than I actually did but it is what it is .
My next finish has been sitting on my cabinet for a couple of months now , just waiting for inspiration as to how to finish it off and today I did the leap of faith and just added some birch trees and I am pleased .
 I need a frame for it now 😊
One more for today , this pillow started taking form before Christmas,  if you look closely those are Christmas fabrics . This is a design by my friend Linda Smith of Scrapmaster fame . I had the top completed but just ran out of time to get it quilted so I  took this along to our retreat and I used my walking foot to quilt curves using a stencil my friend Sharon shared with me , it onky marked the corner so I used my trusty quilt bar attached to my walking foot as I was instructed by Linda Hubbard at a recent class . It was great fun once I got started . 
This is just resting over a pillow as it is Very large at 20" square .I have since made a pillow form for it but hadn't done another photo . Thanks Linda for a great pattern. 

 Well that's it for me today , thanks as always for taking the time to stop by , it is a pleasure to have you visit .
 Hugs Sheila

    Loved making my Henrietta quilt. I put it in our quilt show over five years ago and I think you were making yours then too.
