At the beginning of October I made my list of proposed finishes.
This is my first finish of the 4th quarter:
Drawn Together; a mini quilt designed by Sarah Fielke from her book "Little Quilts".
fabric: assorted from stash and Bella solid off-whiteThe embroidery needle came from this packet:
backing and binding: Bella solid off-white
quilting thread: Aurifil 12 weight in various colours with a crewel no 9 needle on the star and Yli thread on the background triangles.
Question for UK friends: "How long have I had this?" (Look what it cost!)
For those of you outside the UK the abbreviation "d" in the price stands for pence in the old British monetary system which went out of use in the early 1970s. Incredibly a pristine unused packet of needles more than forty years old! I found it when looking for embroidery thread - in a squishy old paper bag, between skeins of stranded cotton - voilà! Such a useful find, but I wonder why I never opened it before now!
