Girly Quilt!

 All finished - for whom? One day a little girl will come along and this quilt will keep her warm and happy. And it has been so lovely to play with while making it!
 All little scraps that somehow just work and I have hand-quilted it using Presencia Finca Perle 8 thread. My fingers are itching to get on the go again, another big-stitch quilted project is a must. Whoohoo! A little light bulb has just gone on - now it wouldn't take much to whip up a little mug-rug with Christmas just around the corner.
I have been so slack with posting lately, though I must admit I still do lots of blog-reading - lots of beautiful projects happening out there.

Duh! Now my signature has gone again, not my fault, naughty Blogger! Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs - Lurline♥

I love this quilt, all stitched in red! Any girl would love it.
Are you thinking low volume like I am? I am dreaming ideas, and right now doing a strip checkerboard in light colors. When our package comes, it will seem like Christmas ~

I love your quilt. It looks easy to do. I have never made a quilt but I am making those little hexie's. They are so much fun. I would love to try and make one like this little girl quilt though. Not sure if I might need to find a pattern for it.
Lovely!
