Knowing that I was going on a trip to Spain for some fun in the sun I finished my April Goal (Post #5) early. Good thing too as I haven't been near my sewing machine in almost two weeks! Haven't blogged either and it almost feels like I'm starting from scratch. Things change so quickly in this electronic world... or maybe I'm still swirling red wine in/on the Costa del Sol :)
Fox Kits is finished! A wonderful little pattern by Lorna McMahon at Sew Fresh Quilts. I enjoyed this from start to finish! My only whine, I wish I had quilted it at home on my little Brother with the wonderful curvy stitches. My Janome here in England doesn't have as many stitch options. I guess I'm just going to have to work on my FMQ ~~~shiver~~~ But for Finley's Fox Kits, it was straight (mostly) stitches, changing directions to get some texture :) Still fun and I'm happy with the results.
I used various Fat Quarters, mostly Wal Mart specials ;) The back is pieced bits of woodland animals, colored dots on brown (also used for the binding), with Finley being centered, pretty much :)
I'm linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes at Bitter Sweet Designs if I can unscramble my head enough to sort out HOW to :) Pop over and take a peek at some of the wonderful April Finishes!
