Got a few things finished

This is a little miniature scarecrow I made for a swap and then decided it just wasn't something I thought my partner might like. He's about 14" tall.

So, I made this for her and it felt more like what I thought she was hoping for. It's the size of a piece of printer paper.

And then I finally finished this queen size top that I had made about a year and a half ago. I lost this top more then once during my moves and just about everything that could possibly delay it being finished happened but in the end, we were all happy with how it turned out. The piecing and top itself turned out great but my quilting on this was not some of my best work. It was easy to for me to see I hadn't quilted in awhile but no one else seem to see what I seen. That's the wonderful part about making quilts for others they love them no matter what and never pick every little stitch apart like I do on my own work. But I've always felt done is better then perfect, so I'm very happy with how it turned out.
