Double whammy!

Not only have I finished another quilt, but it was out of my UFO box too! The blocks I had made after a workshop with Jennie Rayment and had kept since 2008 are now happily together in a quilt!
The blocks are her folded star, which I have made in mainly striped black and white fabrics. This emphasises the folds and the star in each block. Because it's folded, I have sewn down most of the folds to stabilise the quilt for little fingers, but I think that has improved the final effect.
Here is a close up of my favourite block.

And here is another block, and a peek at the backing which (along with the borders) was donated by Elaine to project Linus. Thanks, Elaine! I think a boy will love this quilt, and I'm delighted to cross a UFO off my list!

What a lovely quilt. I like that quilting in the borders, it's perfect. The whole thing has a very oriental feel.
