Another quilt finish

Hello everyone.
 Thankyou for coming for a visit.
Today I finished `My Favorite Things` quilt. I  journeyed with Chooyblue on the
SKofW SAL.
 The patterns in Anni Downs `Some kind of wonderful` book. Thankyou Chookyblue for starting and co-ordinating this lovely SAL.


This quilt I mainly used fabric out of my stash,though I did buy a few tone on tones for the background of some applique blocks. Also brought the backing fabric and binding. Loving the way it came together as usually my fabrics come in a BOM. Then this part is sorted for me.

   
I free motion (first time) quilted on this side the sashings and border strips using an off white thread for the top and in the bobbin `king Tut` verigated pink tones in the bobbin. That was after using my walking foot to stitch in the ditch round blocks on the right side with threads reversed in my sewing machine. Then the applique I hand quilted as I need more practice for closer work.


I found this cute cat so he became my label.
  

For some reason this is on it`s side. I used parts of this `Thimbleberries` stencil for my quilt. The blue `Frixion` pen is amazing as the lines disapear when heat applied.
Thankyou for your visit. Hope you come again next time.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
