Park Bench Fini

     A final press  this morning to show off the 'fini' of my Park Bench quilt by Jaybird Quilts. First the  Chief Inspector of Quilts gave the quilt top a careful scrutiny...


It passed!!!



I finally felt I had enough samplers featuring birds to create my 'Bird Sampler Wall' in the Sewing Room.




....and just a bit more progress on A Parrot, A Leopard, A Lion.


The bottom photo is a truer representation of the linen and thread colors... even though it's a bit blurry.


Being a Chief Quilt Inspector wears a guy out!
