Lily pad toss (almost) done!

I finished the lily pad toss! Happy me! One more present done :)
I made the bag from this tutorial, it was sooo easy! I used my serger -quick and easy :)
Now I just need to sew some eyes on the frogs...well...so it's ALMOST done... Lol!

I also made binding for Charles' quilt, for some reason I thought this was a time consuming project.
It took ½ hour to cut and sew the binding...and not much more to sew it on to the quilt.
The handstitching will take longer, so I am saving that for friday night... Charles will not be home (Christmas party at work), and I am going to watch tv and finish this when the kids are sleeping.
This is what was left of the binding. I always save the "left-overs", that way I have some for the next scrappy binding project!

I do love that bag for the lily pad game! And the game, and the quilt, of course. :>} I think I see a glimpse of the back of Charles' quilt - you find such perfect backing fabric. Nicely done!

You know he had better love this quilt. I feel so involved, watching it develop I would be devastated if it wasn't the best thing he ever recieved (which it will be of course).

Hia Tine, well done for finishng the lily pad game. It is a lovely idea and so beautifully made. Is the bag to put the game in- it co-ordinates so well with the lily pad shapes?

Love your Kaffe Fassett backing to Charles' quilt. Well done for finishing that too. You are on a roll!
