Two Squirrels, One Pillow and One Box

I am fascinated by finishing and how a different finisher or a different end result changes a design. So I found Ruth Schmuff's latest blog posting about two pieces from her mystery class particularly interesting.  This is Sandra Vargas's "Playful Squirrel" which was one of Ruth's mystery classes last year.  Two of her students have finished their versions and sent them to Ruth's shop for finishing.  It's amazing how different they look even though the designs themselves are nearly identical.  I can see the boxed standup on my mantel piece in the living room while its twin is a cushion for the tall leather chair in the library.

Great job on Ruth's part, the finishers' and of course her students!
