One down - four to go!

In my last post I decided to challenge myself to finish five of my current projects by the end of the month. I'm such a dilettante that I have various things on the go all the time (apart from my big box of UFOs, you understand!). Well, so far so good.

This Linus mile a minute is finished now.
I used a fabric with Snoopy playing football as the centres, and I think it's bright and cheerful for a football-loving boy or girl.


I have also been busy putting borders on my purple stars quilt, luckily out of my stash! The purple fabric I bought ages ago in a sale. The lighting was poor in the shop, and I thought it was navy, and perfect for backing a quilt for DS. When I got it home, I found I had bought 5 yards of purple fabric, and it has taken me a while to get through it! (The selvedge has the date 1996 on it - but surely I haven't had it for that long?!)

It looks great and really hightlights the gree Inrish chain squares, they look much more vivid now.

I think in every quilter's stash there is one fabric that never seems to disappear no matter how much you cut it up! I have a red paisley that keeps haunting me and I know I bought it in 1996! LOL

Love the Snoopy quilt...that will be perfect for someone.
