Another March finish and a lovely surprise

Yey, I've got another finish! I worked on this all weekend, finished my last few stitcheries then put borders on, binding and quilting and I'm so pleased with the end result!




This mini quilt was designed by Lynette Anderson as a free Mystery BOM, it was so much fun to make and it's been great to see how everyone elses have turned out. Thank-you Lynette for sharing this gorgeous design with us!
I also popped into Sarah's on the weekend and she handed me a little parcel, it was from Simone! Simone sent me these Peter Rabbit postcards, they are adorable, Thank-you Simone!

Next on my to to list is to put the binding on my Jelly Roll quilt, so I'll be busy stitching this week! Enjoy your week too!!

Jo,
Your mini quilt is adorable. I have never done a mystery block quilt. That sounds like lots of fun, especially if the end result is as cute as yours!

Happy quilting,
Susan
