Blogging from England today. More on my trip when I get back to (snowy?!) Finland, but I just wanted to check in and to post this:
My Four Seasons Spring quilt has arrived in Washington State, so here's a photo of the whole thing. This is the first needle-turn applique I've done and I have to admit, I liked it. I think there will be more applique in my future. It's quilted really densely and the free-motion in the circles is far from perfect, but I hope that Alicia likes it! (This photo is pre-washing, the post-washing photo is kinder to my quilting.)
When I asked for UK travel tips, I offered a little give-away. It's a mini version of the quilt above, about 6"x10". I did a little stitching with pearl cotton on the center 'flower'. It has found a home with Karol-Ann in England Thanks to everyone who commented - it was my first give-away. I think I'll do another one for my two year blogiversary in August.
I finished both the swap quilt and the mini with Terry Chilko's fast finish triangles. I've mentioned these before - found them on Ami Simms' site.
