The one with a finish in it

I follow my wonderful project Linus co- ordinator on twitter @PL_UK_Stirling she often puts out appeals for quilts and I feel incredibly guilty as I have at least 4 tops waiting to be layered up etc. This weekend I decided I wasn't allowed to do anything else until I had done at least three of them.
First one - hot chocolate, blogged about here. The pattern is from Southwind designs


Hot chocolate 2

This next one is the sew a sampler series from popular patchwork, it's extra special as it is my first adventure (be gentle) in free motion quilting, I did a gentle meander/stipple and am quite please with it! All it needs now is binding then off to Project Linus it will go.

My little tin of left over binding strips is perfect for a scrappy quilt.

  5. Love your sampler quilt for Project Linus. What a lovley quilt for a child, so much to see and find hidden in the quilt. I keep leftover binding strips too, they can be so useful and make a quick binding at the end of a project.
