And This Little Pig said A Finish and A Start

LHN Warm Winter Woolens is finished! Crazy 2012 number 2.
I did change the sheep's head a little, more rounded :@
I'm going to try and frame this myself... maybe... fingers crossed.
A little more stitching on LHN Ornament 2011 Silent Night, house, trees and night sky, along with some of the border, it does go all the way round now :@
This is what I spent the weekend doing, instead of stitching... Butterscotch & Rose by Fig Tree, 42 pre-cut 10" quilting squares, so using my trusty rotary cutter, each square was cut up into 4, which gave me 168 x 5" squares.
So 9 across and 15 down, which will give me a double (twin) bed size quilt, well once I add the 6" border.
I know it's only a simple quilt, but this is the first one I have done in many years, and the fact that I did it all in  one weekend... very happy :@ Oh it is going to be a 21st birthday gift.

Catch you all later... LiBBiE in Oz

  7. I really like the fabric you have chosen for your quilt. Sometimes it's nice to use a simple pattern to show the beauty of the fabric design.
