There's one thing about the online community, people are so generous,
with their time, thoughtful comments, cheering on from the sides, and just being there when you need them
and when friendship blossoms, extraordinary things happen
and to say thank you for some extraordinary help, and cheering and egging on,
I needed to say Thank You ...
it all started with some egging on with these from Karen at Blueberry Park
Karen posted a picture of her doily prints on Twitter and I was quick off the mark to get the first prints
there were conversations about quilting, oh ... my mind was in a spin!
and so at Festival of Quilts I matched up some Kona Cornflower blue from Justine at Simply Solids
and managed to score some Aurifil 50 wt #2720 to match
and set to with the inspiration ...
I love doing this pattern really small ... again Aurifil 50 wt in #2024
and I am so pleased with how it turned out!
I didn't mark anything, just went for it freestyle in my usual 'just do it' way!
and I even managed my first attempt at the Sew Mama Sew concealed Zipper on the back!
(Thanks to Katy for the fab Pillow Tutorials that pushed me there!)
I am pleased to say that this little lovely made it to its new home,
I know it is loved,
Thank You Helen!
