Boys Story .....

 Hubz has been out of town for a few days and so I have taken advantage of the empty house, the wet weather and the fact that I can easily live on a pot of chicken soup and plenty of tea - and the occasional piece of french toast with lashings of maple syrup

It has taken me a while to finally get this very cute quilt quilted and bound..... 


I found it hard to think of how I wanted to quilt it..... finally I decided on quite big swirls in the main piecing, in the ditch and just around the edge of the pictures in the applique blocks, and just around the squares in the little cartoon stitcheries....






Soooooo much fun doing the different blocks .... I just loved every part of this quilt, the pictures are funny and the detail is amazing ....



Should you wish to look at more detail of this quilt just follow THIS LINK.... I know you will be surprised but I did blog lots about it as I went along.... and the link should pick up all the relevant posts...

Boys Story is designed by Anni Downs - as always her book has a number of delightful projects .... I know I will be using it again

Righto, Gotto Go..... a cuppa to celebrate methinks.... (and later maybe a beer to celebrate) ...
