So did the title catch your eye? If so, I'll admit it is a teaser. More info at the end of this post on the albino squirrel. So.....Ta dah!! I got the binding on my Butterscotch Scrap Jar Stars! While there was some sun today I dragged it out in the backyard for a couple of pictures.
The quilt measures about 80" square so it should be a nice fit on a double bed.
Cass again did a great job on the quilting - just look at those adorable pumpkins stitched in a Fall-ish variegated thread. I love them!
And here is the arty shot -- I think the colors are truest in this picture. Now I have about 9 blocks left over from this quilt and plenty of fabric to do some more. I think they may reappear next Fall as a lap quilt but for now they will hibernate in a lovely ziploc bag.
Now about the albino squirrel -- okay after doing some research it may not be a true albino but I'm not sure since I couldn't get a good picture of him. And to be truthful this isn't my picture but I didn't think I could talk about it without one.
I was down in the neighborhood where my son's house is today on two different occasions. As I was leaving his house around noon I almost wrecked my car when I saw an albino-or white- squirrel run across the street in front of my car. After recovering I pulled to the curb and got my phone out and tried to get a picture as he was nonchalantly snacking on a neighbor's landscaping. The picture I took is kinda blurry and he scampered off. I returned to the neighborhood about 2 hours later and told my youngest son who was now with me in the car about the squirrel. He looked at me like I had rocks in my head and then the white squirrel reappeared in the exact same yard!! My son also tried to get a picture without success. Now I'm thinking about taking my camera with me tomorrow and staking out a spot and seeing if I can get a picture of my own white
