A finish for February (178)

From February 2009 03/02/2009 16:56
I've finished my first February project - quillow number 6 for one of my nieces. Sadly I couldn't wait for that elusive sunshine to photograph it, as I finished it just in time to pack it up and deliver it yesterday. I used a Kaffe Fassett charm pack and some other fabrics, some wonderful purple buttons and embroidered it using perle cotton and big stitches.

I hope to finish Lynette Anderson's Noah's Ark quilt in the next few days too, and then to catch up on all the other stitchery BOMs that I've started. I'm also machine quilting a quilt that I've backed with a fleecy rug, to go in the car.

This morning I took some time out to make half a dozen star blocks, using Quiltville's Maverick Stars pattern. A UK blogger, Maria at Sew Love to Sew, has volunteered to gather blocks together and send them out to Australia to be made into quilts for victims of the bush fires. This is such an easy pattern to make.

I love the 'quillow'. I especially like the stitching. Really compliments the fabrics well. Like your star blocks. They are fun to do.

Wow, Amanda thanks for the star blocks. That was so quick. I've not done mine yet. I look forward to receiving them and sending them off to Australia.
Do you mind if I give you a mention on my blog?
Your quilt looks great, love the colours.
