The borders just went on Rascal Patch and it's just adorable! I'm usually a traditional block quilter and don't venture into whimsical quilts too often. The pattern is in Quiltmaker Magazine July/August 2013. Isn't he cute as can be?
Next up are the borders for Sly Patch. I should be able to quilt these up over the Labor Day holiday weekend and they'll be all ready for the arrival of my niece's twins.
Last night I headed over to the fabric store and debated a long time over A) batting and flannel backing or B) fleece backing only. The softness of the fleece won out. Rascal Raccoon will have a mottled light blue backing and Sly Fox will have mottled bright green.
