Curvaceous Cabin blocks done

 I balked at every step of this Curvaceous Cabins construction.
Now, finally, I like it! I got a lot of encouragement from fellow Silver Thimble members. Since I had started it back in 2008, I was not sure I'd ever work on it again, let alone complete the top.
Thimbles members Julie, Sarah and Jane, helped me with binding color. I was thinking yellow, but they thought green. This is the green I had at home. I think it will do fine.

I needed to press a piece of fabric for another project,
and Joe pulled it off the ironing board when my back was turned. Thanks goodness he didn't pull the iron off with it. 
 Why can't he be good and sleep all day like his big sister Kitten?
He wakes for mischief as soon as I walk into my sewing room. I am lucky to have such good problems. Wow, I just checked the time 5:15 a.m. I forgot to go to bed. Think the kids will forgive me if I miss church? Dang. It.

Your quilt is beautiful and a lot of piecing. I think Joey is trying to tell you something, get some sleep, lol.

I so admire your ability to finish projects long ago set aside. Me? not so much.... Wanna come to Vegas and finish a few here? It includes a vintage bed and all meals? <3
