you are, let me not pass
you by in quest of some rare and

I have GOT to finish my Candy Cane Quilt! I finished the center panel in class with Kathy, and started work on the half square triangles, but the majority of the work is unfinished. So I picked up where I had left off a few days ago, and here is my progress.... I had sewn some of the triangles together, thank heaven, so that tedious task was almost finished.
This black border that frames the center panel was actually one of the most difficult pieces to do so far. They are cut 3/4 of an inch wide, and then are sewn to the panel. It frames the picture nicely and reminds me of when I used to color in elementary school and outlined everything in black! It sets of the center panel nicely.
I am anxious to get back to my sewing room and work on it a little more!
