Late again!

It seems I forgot to show the final finished Pinwheels quilt from the Old Red Barn Quilt Along. 

Oh, how I love this quilt  :)

And the green spotty binding!

And I finally got all the binding stitched down and the label sewn on to the blue and yellow quilt for a dear friend who is leaving to go live in French France! 

Now what better than 'French Blue' for a title!

All wrapped ready to deliver in the morning :)

And I've been playing with my new found confidence with free motion quilting after my workshop with Phillipa Naylor.

First the wobbly feather ...

Then a load of fillers ...

And finally a Photo Album cover for the same friend .

I am so thrilled at how well this turned out! 

Happy Quilting!
