Leanne Beasley's original idea was to make a note every day for a year but I knew I couldn't keep up with that so I made a panel for a month with a few little stitcheries on each diary block. I had a collection of 12" star block patterns I'd been wanting to use in a quilt so this worked out well using a variety of red, burgundy, caramel, off-white and cream fabrics from my stash.
Karen did the quilting a few months ago and the binding was sewn on straight away but not stitched down till this week.
Reading what happened over that year has been fantastic: my children's 20th, 25th and 28th birthdays, our holiday in Tasmania, Mum's 80th birthday party, a friend's visit to Sydney for the quilt show and lots of everyday stuff. So much has happened since then including university graduations, two weddings, two grandbabies.
