YIPPEE! One of the kid quilts I've been working on the last month is FINISHED!!!!! I started working on the star blocks approx one year ago, when something went wrong and they were put aside - hidden somewhere in a corner! :) I'm feeling proud; this is my own pattern! I don't know how many hours I have spent working on it - that doesn't really count - but it has been a lot of work - as well as brain work to calculate the blocks fitting together etc. Another thing that makes me proud; the fabrics I have used are from my stash! The only thing I have bought is flannel for the batting and backing - didn't have suitable flannel at all in my stash.
I have used Beatrix Potter novelty fabric; Peter Rabbit and the goose (does that goose have a name? I can't remember!) with coordinating fabrics - Moda marbles.
Here's a close-up of the center piece. Sorry my digital camera does not take good close-ups, I can't get the photos better. If my calculation is right, the quilt consists of 763 pieces and I have quilted in each of them. What a job! LOL! :) I have enjoyed every second and minute I have worked on it - a challenge!
Since I have created the quilt, I have named it "Gelane's Quilt". I completed the quilt yesterday, when another cyclone was named in our area - its name is "Gelane".
This morning I finished a bread bag! Yes, it is a bread bag, or better say "baguette bag". How do you get an almost one meter long baguette into a supermarket plastic bag without the baguette going into two pieces?! Impossible!!! (I do wonder why on earth the baguettes have to be that long?!!) The bag was almost finished before Christmas last year, left to add the handles only. Isn't it amazing how long time simple things take to finish?! Well, now that one is done too - two UFO's less - on my list of UFO's! These two projects are not only two UFO's, but two OPAM projects for February too! Never thought I was going to make it! :)
