I am getting in right under the wire with my Lovely Year of Finishes goal! I stitched the last seam of my quilt top for P. L. with an episode of The Great British Sewing Bee to keep me company. It’s fitting (pun intended), I believe, as I’m calling this original pattern “The Queen’s Rose”.



There is a long story behind every bit of fabric in this top, but I’ll save those details for when it is sandwiched, quilted, and bound. Each fabric is full of loving wishes, some more overtly expressed than others.


I celebrated my finish with an attempt at an adapted recipe for Be-Ro scones! A few little flubs didn’t hurt the flavor, and I had to have a bit of irony with my tea. Altogether, a proper way to polish off the month of February!


Linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes!
