An Itty Bitty Finish

Yes I am still hand quilting my 'Fussy Fairytales' quilt. I certainly hope to have it finished by next Friday. I have 5 large blocks and 16 peek-a-boo windows to do. So I am nearly at the end. The largest of my un-quilted areas are 6"x7" and I am a little worried that this is too large to leave. I am thinking of shooting an email to the pattern designer Kate Conklin as she hand quilted her version too.

Magnets in Steel Linen

I got a chance to finish up my second lot of magnets from the Zakka Style Sew-Along.

Sewing the corners
Double stitching with a small stitch length
 Turning it right side out
 The smallest gap
 Slipping the magnets inside
 And sewing the gap closed with a blind stitch

And as the pattern says "Voila! One little sampler quilt."
I am linking up with....
