Ready for mailing

Yesterday I finished the 6 Soy Amado blocks I have been making for Alison at littleislandquilting.blogspot.co.uk

Four made from gifted log cabins which I have enlarged to make the required 12.5" square finished blocks:


And 2 made from orphan blocks:
 

The first block with the appliqued hearts was a block leftover from a quilt I made last year for Siblings Together. I had to add a little extra cream fabric so that the blocks would be large enough and I experimented with some matchstick machine quilting down the centre panel. I echo hand quilted around the hearts with a variegated pink Perle thread.

The blue and cream block began with the centre square block.  I added extra borders, medallion style, hand quilted in the ditch and sewed a deep turquoise button in the centre.

I'll be mailing these to Guernsey tomorrow.
