May Goal ALYoF - Smashed!

Done and dusted.  Well, apart from the hand stitching down the binding bit...

Outer circles, segments, petals, crosses...


... sashing, cornerstones and cornerstone circles all handquilted using 12wt Aurifil cotton thread.

We've also been doing a little bit of recycling around here... this dolls cot which has become one of those unloved items in Nadia's room, is just the right size for the dog... she feels really special and it keeps her up off the cold floor.

A Lovely Year of Finishes
