Finish #2 & Another giveaway

With one day to spare, I have another finish! This pattern is from the first year of Jo Morton's Little Women Club. Most of the piecing was done in Minnesota a few years ago while visiting friends, JoAnn and Debbie, with my sister, Connie. The color is really off. The blue is much prettier and a bit darker that it appears. If you click on the photo, it shows a truer look of the colors. It measures 31" square and is my second finish for Peg's Finish Five Challenge. I knew I had little chance of getting five done before the end of July, but I'm thrilled to have two. That's two more than I probably would have had without it. Thanks, Peg!

Oooh -- it's wonderful, Jeanne! How big are the little blocks?

Love those rich colors. I was in the Jo MOrton for a while, think that I did that one, too. It was nice that they were challenging but small enough to actually finish!!

Hey Jeanne! Congrats on your two finishes!! I only finished two of my 'official' projects for Peg's challenge, but have interrupted myself along the way to finish a couple of smaller projects, like the doll I posted about yesterday. I was pretty chuffed to finish two quilts - one as a gift for a friend and the second now residing on one of the chairs in our lounge room. The challenge has also encouraged me to keep tackling my UFO's!! Hope it continues to inspire you too - so I can see more fun photos! Tee! Hee! Hee! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)
