Happy Leap Day & Bedcover status

Here is my current status on my Maggie Bonanomi Boxwood & Berries Bedcover. I'm happy with how it is coming along. I have one more border on the top and the bottom and then comes the part that I am not sure about... the quilting and backing. It will be a new experience for me!
I was so excited to hear from several Boxwood & Berries classmates after they saw my status. It seems like most of us have picked up the project again now that the holidays are over. I would love to share photos of my classmates projects as well, so please share your photos with me at It is so much fun to see, how we all start with the same project, but each comes out a bit different.
Pat from session #1 was kind enough to send me her status photo:
Isn't it lovely?! Her added pennies and diamonds are perfect! And I love the little bird's twig... off to build a nest, I'm sure. Here she is testing out scallops in deciding how to finish it. Pat says that she will share a finished photo as well - I can't wait to see it! I'm hoping to see others' photos as well ;)
My bedcover is temporarily sidelined as I finish up my TDIPT Mercantile first of the month offerings... Be sure to stop there later tonight as the big birthday bash begins! More on that tomorrow...
And a Happy Leap Day to you!
Isn't this little Leap Day dance card sweet?
Celebrated at "Forest Hall", the name of the dance was:
"Red and Yeller
Catch a Feller"
so fun!
Here's hoping you do something you love on your extra day!
I'll be attending my younger son's band concert tonight - he plays the tuba :)
And then late tonight, I'll be updating my TDIPT Mercantile offerings.
Blessings, Patti
