It has finished at 42" square. Another one to be passed over to Project Linus - and one more step to dealing with all my scraps!
I wanted some simple sewing that would use some of the fat quarters that I was given for Christmas.
After trawling though my mini / small / miniature quilt books I decided on this one from "Little Quilts all Through the House". Called 'Stars in the Snow' it used three of my fabrics (you can't see the lustre on the background one) to make a Christmassy mini quilt. I am pleased with how neat my diagonal quilting it. I shall add it to the others that I hang in the kitchen each year. It finished at 18" x 14".
This week I plan to start another mini quilt with more Christmas FQs, to consider fabric choices for the BOW that I've signed up for (Aves by Kathryn Kerr - it looks amazing but I'm not sure that I'll be able to keep up with it as it also looks quite intricate!) and to have a look to see which scraps I might use in my next lap quilt.
Lots of planning and thinking there!
