Blogger's Quilt Festival!

"My Favourite Things Quilt" has been some time in the making.....


Some of these blocks came from Round 1 of the Embroider-Bee over at Flick'r....


And some came from Round 2!



So thank you 'Lethargic Lass' and 'Threaded Nest' and 'Sassypacks' and 

'Giveitago' and 'Miesmama' and '2mayboys'.....





This quilt is as much yours as it is mine!

I added a couple of blocks of my own and hand quilted it with some perle and 


Aurifil thread!


And now it is complete!


With its pretty red and white striped binding!

And a pieced back...


It is not a big quilt, only about 44 inches square!

But it is a much loved one!

  12. Tell me about this perle. Is that the thick stitching I keep seeing? Is it cotton? easy to use? Where do you get it? I like it, it adds dimension to your quilt.
