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!!

My Third Finish

My third finish of the year.  

This "Heart of Christmas" stitchery is a Rosalie Quinlan design I started awhile back but have now finished.  I still have two other to finish and am hoping to this year.

This one is the "Angels" pattern

March UFO ....

The 6 1/2" blocks for this quilt were made in a swap a few years ago

This is the quilt I made with my blocks - I took out the pinky ones as I specifically wanted this to be for my almost teenager eldest grandson....  

I custom quilted the blocks, with these twisted orange peels in the darker blocks

... and a curved ribbon in the lighter blocks
(hard to see but hopefully this second picture is better)

.. an a twisted ribbon look in the sashing - miles of sashing!!

It's a lovely warm masculine quilt ....

I was given some spare blocks which were added to my extra's and I have made up a second quilt using them.... the same but different!!

The squares have all been sashed and then recut on a very slight angle to give it a bit of a wonky look...

I'm pleased to say I have one of my UFO's finished this month - but I also managed to make another one too!! 

Righto, Gotto Go.... I'm going to have a dig in my drawer to find a SMALLER UFO to finish....
