finishing off the latest Just Takes 2 blocks for the first half of the month, only two this time, for which I am eternally grateful. Both blocks were a little fiddly and took a bit of time, they were paper foundation pieced
halfway through the 12 1/2" block
I lay all the pattern and fabric pieces out on some batting so I can keep track of everything, even then I sometimes sew things together the wrong way around.

I finished sewing the binding, hanging sleeve and label on this sweet little quilt about half an hour ago, I really enjoyed quilting with the perle thread, the one drawback with using a thicker thread such as this, is that knots are a bit hard to hide, I usually pull mine through the fabric, but bigger knots make bigger holes, so as this quilt is very small, I managed to pull the thread through from each side.
