I have finally started

I have finally started on my SKoW project. Having only joined in January-- I am already behind schedule.  I am doing needleturn for this project. Initially, I was not going to as I am not very good with needleturn, but decided I would do it after all, as that is the only way to improve my technique. So please do not look too closely at the stitching, as some of them have little sharp points where they should not be. Hopefuul, these will improve. I have not done the embroidery or the wording as yet, but will do so when I have done the blocks for the first 2 rows.
I had bought Anni's  "My Favourite Things"fabric at the Darling Harbour Show last year, and I have used some for another project-- but still have lots for this project as well, in combination with fabrics from my stash.
So Chooky, I hope I am not in too much trouble for being this far behind!

Cheers,
Yvonne

You have a very good reason for being behind only joining in January. I joined last year & didn't start working on it until January, so I'm behind too. Your blocks look great!!!

You will catch up quickly Yvonne - this quilt is very hard to put down! Your blocks look great and the stitching doesn't take too long.
