Working on Leo

"Leo the Lion"
also known as Ethan's quilt

This minky quilt kit has been a challenge for me to make because I'm not used to working with minky and fur. Made several errors but I think its cute anyway! All that's left to do is the binding, some additional quilting and I see I forgot to stitch in his whiskers. Love that cute little tail!

This quilt is heavy - the pattern called for batting sandwiched between two layers of minky. It will be very warm and today warm is good. We're expecting mid day temperatures to be around 25 degrees today and together with the wind, Brrr.

Until next time, Mayleen
