Happy Blocks quilt on its way

Our Happy Blocks quilt has been packaged and mailed to Middlemore Hospital today.

Linda chose a simple but effective leafy design to frame each block.

A little bit of stitching within each picture block helped to highlight them as well.
















This giraffe was one of my blocks and I love the way Linda has highlighted the giraffe with her stitching.

















Some soft pink minky fabric made for a lovely soft backing.

Minky is hard to hand stitch binding on to so once again I resorted to magic binding and it worked like a dream for another great finish.
