I adapted it from a Nancy Pearson pattern back in 1995. I made this specifically for our small guild challenge and it won a third place ribbon. The quilt also ended up in a New Zealand quilters diary. I used fabrics and methods that I would never use today and it's interesting to see the change in my style. I'm going to sit and baste these pieces on for my last princess feather block tonight. I'm hoping I can take it on holiday for a stitching fix when I need it.
I'm away in New Zealand for three weeks from Sunday. My DS, DD and granddaughters as well as a sister live in Auckland and I'm off to help out my DD as she is about to have her 4th child. A boy this time after three girls. My DS also turns 24 while I'm there and one of the children is turning two. I'm pretty excited to see them again.
Just in the nick of time I got my nine patches done for this month and thought I had better do next months as well. Never mind that I'm behind on my BOM.
I don't think I'm going to have much to blog about so this could be a break but I'll still try to keep up with my blog reading, until next time, may all your stitches be small.
Hoo roo as they say in Oz.
