Wish Upon a Star

Got another baby quilt finished... from flannel this time, using all stash, including the scrap of batting I used in it. This one is called Wish Upon a Star from the Lickity Split Quilts for Little Ones book by Laurie Bevan. It was fun quilting this one with the funky hearts to mimic the design in the fabric.

I really feel like I have accomplished something today. Finally finished a UFO I started well over 30 years ago. I hand pieced this quilt using cardboard templates to cut the blocks .... boy have I come a long way baby ! I almost threw this top away instead of finishing it because I was ashamed of the workmanship in it. It may have puckery seams and not be perfectly square but all in all after it is all quilted and bound it doesn't look half bad LOL.

meet "Cassidy"

Cassidy started as a small handfull of 30s blocks that were sent to me as a PIG (project in grocery sack). It took some thinking and a little embroidering but I think I came up with a cute way to put those blocks into a sweet little comfort quilt for some little girl.

A Finish

just now put the last stitch in the binding on this little gem. the embroidery blocks are a set of Bonnet Kids designs that I test stitched for the DollarStitch embroidery site. the 9 patches were from a swap I was in in an earlier life.(mostly extra ones I had made because the swap was a dissapointment) the backing ,border, and binding came from stash , and the batting was a leftover hunk from an earlier project. so, all in all i am feeling pretty thrifty LOL.
