The Far Far Away story...

I cannot begin to tell you what a joy it was working with these fabrics...linen is so much more resilient than cotton and sturdy too which means that both piecing and quilting were much easier and the final quilt is looking gorgeous...

This is the front made from a Moda Bakeshop pattern called "Boxed in" by KarrieLyne from Freckled Whimsy ( The quilt is very easy to make and i think it is a great combination for these fabrics:

and a couple of my favourite blocks with the Sleeping Beauty:

and the back with a 9 patch from leftover fabrics (upside down unfortunately!!!):

I quilted it using a dark orange/yellow thread and 2 different stitches from my machine. One is wavy and it went over the key seams and the other a star, was made around the small blocks to emphase those bits of fabric.
The fabrics are absolutely gorgeous and the Pussy & the Owl are the cutest ever!!! Not a baby quilt but a little girl one for sure!!! so I will count this as my baby's quilt number 2!!!! that has already made me feel much much better!!!
