"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

Another stitched block, and anniversary quilt finished.

This is the sixth block in Lyn Briggs' Girlfriends Stitchery Club - isn't it sweet? I've just printed off the last one in this series, and will stitch it in the next day or two. I am dying to make up the mini quilt with all the stitched blocks and four patch squares made up from my scrap box!

Below is the anniversary quilt for our friends Mark and Louise.  It isn't a full size quilt, but will make a nice throw or wall hanging.  The front has three photos of them with printed pics of London icons.  I have tried all the settings on my camera to make this clearer, and taken photos inside and outside, but for some reason, it always comes out blurry.  The quilt really looks much better than these photos.

The back is a completely different colour scheme and has no photos, so if they get tired of the red and blue, they can flip it over to show this fabric featuring Italian tourist spots.

That's a pretty little block and well done on the quilt. Plenty of memories for them in that one, I'm sure it will be well loved
