Jewel Ta Dah!

That’s right, Jewel is finished. Maybe I should’ve changed the name as it doesn’t really look like a jewel but, hey ho, I can’t think of anything else.

JewelI love the hand quilting and will definitely do more of it. I also love the red binding. Little Miss Bossy-Boots was crying when I told her that she couldn’t keep this mini.

This mini quilt is off to its new home in America. Bye, bye, little quilt!



It was the end of March yesterday which also means the end of Q1 of the Finish-Along hosted by Katy of The Littlest Thistle. You may remember -as I have been harping on about it- that I put fifteen projects on my FAL list and I’m happy to report that I finished six of them.

1. Athea Spring was turned into a finished cushion. It sits on my sofa and makes me happy every time I look at it.

2. The DQS 14 mini, Liberty Bloom, was finished and sent all the way to Canada.

3. In the Woods was turned into a sewing machine cover.

6. Liberty Butterfly was turned into a cute little cushion.



I’m rather happy with how much I’ve achieved. The other projects will end up on Q2 of the Finish-Along, I’m sure. I’m very pleased to report that I haven’t actually started any new WIPs. Everything I’ve started in the last three months I’ve finished. Long may it continue!
