finishing and beginning

I have completed the baby quilt I began before Christmas, using Moda's Pezzy Print fabric.
I'm pleased with the result and will put it on my etsy shop. My husband has just begun a 3 month sabbatical from church, we are off to Cyprus next week for two weeks, we have a conference to attend in February and then he turns 60 at the beginning of March so I have a couple of little treats planned for then :) I'm not really on sabbatical but plan on sticking to my paid hours for church rather than doing all the extra bits too....not sure if that plan will work!

So I am at last beginning my Liberty quilt. I have been collecting Liberty fabrics over the years with the plan to make myself a quilt from it.  I'm not sure how the pattern will work out as some of the pieces I have are already cut into different sized squares and other pieces are of differing sizes. But I just think I will begin and see what happens. So I will keep you posted as to how it's going, 
I'm excited about starting it at last!

Ohio Star Quilt

I have nearly finished my Ohio Star quilt. It's all put together, the blocks are hand quilted and the binding is on but I will add more handquilting to the white strips and border. 

I may quilt waves around the border, in keeping with the nautical theme.

The white cotton fabric was an old bed sheet from my mothers home which makes me feel quite snug on the inside and out :)
