This was my second finish for January. This lovely design by Gail Pan with my twist to it.
The picot edge lace is from a trip to Melbourne and the delightful Lucellos.

So it didnt quite make it to finished before Christmas but I was determined to get it finished.
I used a decorative star stitch on my machine for some of the quilting around the blocks
I also tried a new alternative to a hanging sleeve that was floating around facebook . Go here for details
Today I finished this and also gifted it to a very special person in our lives for her 70th birthday ... Dear Auntie Daph ( hubby's auntie) .... there were tears and hugs ...
Thank you Natalie Bird for such a beautiful pattern.
As it was finished off this morning we had to stop along the way and grab some photos
