June Finish

I am over the moon with this finish! 
I started this quilt years ago and to have it finished is such a wonderful feeling of satisfaction. 
All the hexies are sewn together by hand. Every piece of fabric is from past projects or been given to me over the years so it is full of memories. 
It is rather large as I wanted it to fit my queen size bed and hang over the four sides as well. 
So happy I can cross this off my list.

May Finish - Susan Oh 2 Sew

Just a small finish for me this this month..and not a long term UFO - but a finish is a finish!!

My bestie gifted me a fat quarter of beautiful gold fabric with houses last year - she knows I have a thing for houses...I started to put it together in February on retreat but didn't get very far....


It's not specifically Christmas but the gold means I will probably use it at Christmas time.

Happy sewing everyone - lets see some more finishes!!!

April Finish - Susan Oh 2 Sew

I have finished my Quilty Fun Sew-a-Long Christmas Quilt.  This was a project from Lori Holt that she ran in 2014 on Instagram - some of the blocks were in her book "Quilty Fun" and some were only on IG.  I didn't do it at the time ...though I bought the book - so thought I'd better make the quilt at least.  I started it sometime in 2014...I think - I really am trying to be more diligent about recording that sort of thing.


Her pattern has a pieced border which I chose not to do and I used a strawberry block from her Farm Girl Vintage book instead of the log cabin block - more appropriate to an Australian Christmas I thought.

March Finish - Susan Oh 2 Sew

I made this quilt as part of the Stitch-A-Long blog - designed by Anni Downs. 

As I was at GDITC in Nundle recently with Anni teaching for the stitching day I had her sign the label.  It's a bit feint but I can read it.
One more off the list!!
