Rushing as usual

to finish my cute little doll quilt hosted by Lori of humble quilts. I really love her Header quilt on her blog, and I think Lori was asked so many times about it, that she graciously offered us a quilt- along called 'Faithful' 
Typically I left it until the last minute, thinking it wouldn't take me long, but those HST are more time consuming than you realise, especially as I didn't have a container full already and had to make them from scratch! 
I love the quirkiness of it...no matching on the corners, which is quite hard for me to do.
I haven't quilted mine, as I intend making 8 more blocks to make a larger quilt.

Oh love your first block! I want to make a quilt using these blocks too and have started the center square on the rest and will slowly add more HST...it does take a while to make all those little HST doesn't it?!
How fun to have you sewing along on the other side of the world.

Happy Sewing

Your Faithful looks fantastic! I especially love the brightness of the blue. You are brave to tackle making 8 more...I am quite satisfied with my singleton!
