An Aurifil finish (it's in the mail now!)

 
Just finished my mini for my sweet sis -- it is now winging its way across the country to her! Last time I showed you the pattern I used (Spotty Hen) and how it was shaping up. (It was late in the day when I shot these photos, so I have some shadows there!)

I used Joanne Figueroa fabrics, and Aurifil threads for the applique, piecing, and quilting!

 
I put corners on the back, so that if she wants to hang it, she can. Or she can use it as a nice, large mugrug, with room for a cuppa and a cookie!

 
Just some outline quilting, seen here.

 
Here is another look at the applique. Seems I always forget to check for loose threads and brush them off!

 
 
This project was lots of fun . . . thank you to Fat Quarter Shop for the inspiration, and to Aurifil threads -- could not have done this without them!

Love,
