A FiNisH

And another project has been crossed off the WIP list... WooHoo...
All that's left for me to do now... is add a label.
Julie quilted my Wonky Star Scrappy Quilt for me... & as usual did a fantastic job.
The quilted pattern is called  Wish Upon A Star... & it shows up beautifully on the back as well.
I LoVe it Julie... thanks so very much!
The WSS blocks are 10 inch finished...with 2 inch finished sashing in between.
The different coloured corner stones were added for effect.
I used a white fabric with "stars" on it throughout the quilt.
The outside borders are also 2 inch finished & add a nice finish to the quilt I think.
The quilt measures 58 inch x  70 inch & is wonderfully soft and cuddly.
Visit Julie's blog HERE... 
Julie would LoVe to quilt something for you too!

A GiVeAWaY

After a bit of a clean up in the cubbyhole... I found these three 5 1/2 inch blocks on "calico" depicting Norfolk Island (which sits off the coast of New South Wales Australia).
I won't ever use them but thought someone out there in blogland may like to incorporate them into a project... so IF you would like them... just leave a comment on this post and if more than one blogger wants them... then I'll have a random draw.
All three blocks are clean and NOT soiled in any way.
Good Luck in this FREE giveaway...

Thanks Kathe... I'll get these blocks off to you... 
please send me your postal details....
