Pat's Knitting and Quilting

Just in the nick of time, I joined the Jorid Linvik Designs KAL and raided my leftover sock yarn to start moose mittens - not enough for a picture yet....soon though :-)
On the quilting front, I am finally machine quilting the Mother Goose Quilt - It has fun prairie point borders and a soft beautiful flannel backing. The machine quilting plan is developing as I go...
