think pink - its a finish !

well here we are at the pointy end of the 2014 finish along and I'm excited that I've got a finish to share - yay !!!

Well, there's not that much to celebrate considering my list was pretty small but a finish is a finish and I'm taking what I can !!

In my list for the last quarter I had included three Care at Do.Good Stitches quilts and I'm happy to say that one is finally done !!

"think pink" is one of my favourite quilts - its made up of pink scrap blocks by members of the fabulous Care circle - I really loved quilting it and getting to look close up at all the gorgeous fabrics in each block!

I quilted it by echo quilting the stars in each block and It is now machine bound and ready to be given to its recipient - a local cancer sufferer.

While taking photos of the finished quilt down at our creek, Pippi decided to run straight across the middle of it with her wet muddy paws - thankfully the marks came out in the wash !!  but it meant that instead of getting a heap of great shots I had to race back home to wash it straight away !
