New project

I recently finished a long time UFO and a baby quilt and there are hardly any other UFO's left ( only about 17 or 18 , ok, I think not that much, but still enough ). So, as you never know what happens when all UFO's are gone, the universe could be shaken to it's core, I quickly started another project ... :-)

I've seen this kind of blocks on Bemused's blog, only I think hers are smaller. The finished size of my blocks is 8". The solid is a Kaffe Fassett shot cotton and it's gorgeous, very shimmery.
 I'll probably make 9 or 12 blocks and then decide how to proceed :-)

Lighthouses quilt is finished

In 2007 I participated in a swap of the German yahoo group quiltswaps and got 6 lovely lighthouses. I 've kept 2 of mine ( I made 2 x 4 ) and finally this quilt is finished.

The back with a boat and some stars

It measures 134 x 105 cm   or  53 x 412 and is machine pieced and machine quilted.

I'll donate it to the yahoo group Pflegekinder, where a foster child will get it.
