I love giving away my quilts. 
When I hear good news
it's great to say:
"Here, I made this"

 But my stash has got a bit low so I thought 
I would make some cot-size quilts

 I love this star pattern made in strips rather than blocks.

And fabrics from my stash....

I am recovering from a fantastic week
spent with many talented and entertaining women.

Mostly I learnt some new stitches which I have turned into my own.

Most of the class made beautifull pieces for their wall.
Not  me!
I decided to sample every stitch separately and save them in a little book
I am going to call:
 "stitched together or pulled apart"
Thank you so much Mary.

In the meantime

I have started quilting this quilt
but in the meantime
I thought I would do something with the scraps from that quilt.

The pieces were tiny and I just thought I would see what I could make.
I didn't even cut the selvedges off!

Hand quilted
and there you go....
it looks different in the evening light doesn't it?

Still keeping busy

Can I say I have had a "brief" distraction to finish this?
