Another finish during FNWF

I have had a great afternoon joining in with FNWF.
I finished quilting this quilt after it has been in my cupboard for a couple of years. I have a great friend who made me a few tops and I quilted a few quilts for her. Thanks Sue.. I also used this project to teach her how to do this pattern. It's a very easy design.
After I got it all quilted I found out there wasn't enough prepared binding with it. So a quick call to my friend and a drive YES she had some fabric to match. Now the binding is on.

And here is a close up of the quilting. I followed the weave pattern and FMQ it very easily.
I'm happy with it.


More sewing I did this week was my quilt shop blocks for the DOD row mystery
We could put any design quilt to hang on the front. I found a small piece of this cute XMAS fabric so I went with that theme. I added a little bling and a few buttons.
If you make one block each month you get next months pattern for free.
You can also make some blocks to swap. Then you can get some great blocks from all over the world..
This is the block I will swap

And this one is for me to keep.


I also help out and make quilts for the AUSSIE HEROES.

There was a request for POPPY BLOCKS for a special project...

  1. Saw that quilt in a magazine - it's still open to that page - for a year or so. I like your version better. Theirs was mostly beige prints.
    Love your Christmas decorations - sweet home. And the poppy is grand. I made a similar version with a wonky center (square) when I was fairly new to blogging. Oh my, that was about 5 years ago already. Where does the time go?
