    Lone Star for Danutia

    I had a lot of trouble with this quilt to say the least, it is for a neighbour, she has a gold leather couch so I thought this would look rather nice, I am minding her dog whilst she is away so I will drape it over her couch for when she comes home tomorrow as a surprise, I do hope she likes it.

    Martha my Springer says hello to all the fur babies.

    I started this quilt last July at a two day class, I found the class very rushed and I was so upset with the result when I got home so I put it away until I decided what to do, I did a lot of unpicking and this is the result.

    The Star is hand quilted and the pale yellow borders are done by machine.

    Martha seems to be saying "Isn't my mom clever - and she's nice too to be giving this away!"

    Gorgeous! It will look awesome on her couch and I would say she'll be blown away when she sees it.

    Martha is sitting so pretty! What a good girl
