    Quilt for my Sister

    I have just returned from New Zealand-one of the main reasons being the wedding of my sister and her partner. With all the issues I have had this year this was not my original quilt that I was going to make but I ran short of time and did not get the original one finished (BeAttittudes-a Nancy Halvorsen pattern) so had to do something else in a hurry. I had earmarked this pattern in a Fons and Porter Magazine and could not believe that the kit was on sale on their website so it all came together really good. She has a modern home and the colours toned in with everything so was a good find. Now I have to finish the original quilt I started.
    My apologies- I have not been active posting this year as lots has happened but hopefully am back on track.

    I also want to make a strata star table toppa that I have seen posted a lot- I think this is so stunning. Does anyone know if there is a free pattern on the net or where I would get one from as have searched and not been able to find anything here-I know there is a u tube video but really need the cutting instructions etc. Happy to swap some NZ or Australian fabric for a pattern also. This site is the tops as everyone is just so helpful and positive so hopefully someone can help me out.

    Enjoy the photo of the quilt.

    Regards
