Sew Day

On Saturday my guild had a sew day and I was able to go for most of the day -yeah.  It was a fun day, sewing during the day then going to friends for supper and cards, what more could I ask for. 
It was about all the sewing I got done this week, but I did finish a couple of books that I was only half way thought at the start of the week.  I decided to take a project that I hadn't worked on for a while but had been on my mind lately.  This floral quilt I purchased the fabric for in 2007 and have worked on it on and off ever since.  I have made all the HST and pinwheels, etc so it only need the borders added and the applique boarder made.  I am planning on doing the applique by hand and I think it will be the next hand project after the stitchery I'm currently working on. 

I love how this changes each time the net border is added,  here is what it looked like at the start of the day and at the end.  This is not my normal colour palette but I think its so pretty and will look great it my guest room when done. This would be the closest I ever done a quilt to the pattern.

I also wanted to share this heart Little Miss decorated.  I help by painting the big pink heart and show her where the letters ended.  I think she did a great job. I know, I'm just being a proud mama.

The pinwheel quilt is so very pretty - I love the way it looks when it's turned on-point. And one to treasure from LM - bet she's growing too fast for you to keep up with her xx
