The bottom panel at last
It has taken me several months to finish this bottom panel, in spite of my eagerness to get to those charming animals. There was a moment of horror a few weeks ago when I discovered I had spilled coffee on the left edge and never noticed until the stain had set. Though I tried to soak part of it, the stain was still there. Oh well, I said, just more of the quilt's history. But when I finished the panel and soaked out the glue, lo and behold, the stain had disappeared. I should vow not to drink coffee anywhere near the quilt, but that just isn't going to happen. This panel was fun to make--even those curly trees.
