Firstly, thank you to all my readers who stopped by and made a comment on my Mariner's Compass Quilt.
I have decided to put it away for a week or two and then I will probably unpick and re-align some of the points.
I will be much happier then!
Now for my latest achievement.
I am very proud to add this quilt to my list of finishes for 2010!
I have posted about this quilt before so I am sorry you are getting a strange feeling of deja vu!
But it is finally finished!
I had purchased the Alexander Henry owl fabric ages ago and wanted to make it into something special.
The pattern came from the first of the Material Obsessions books- the pattern was called Strawberry
In retrospect I don't think the fabric choices were perfect but I was guided by the girls at my LQS.
What has made it special though is the amazing quilting by Karen at "Quilts on Bastings".
She was even generous enough to feature last month it recently on Amy's Quilt Bloggers Festival.
Look at that beautiful quilting!
Yesterday I spent nearly 4 hours machine and hand sewing the binding on.
I love the spirals in the centre of the stars!
Why do they remind me of pavlova?
I forgot to take photos of the back.
I chose a very plain monotone print but again Karen has made that a feature by quilting in different
colors to great effect!
This will surely become a family heirloom!
What are you working on?
Have a happy day!
