Colleen/Oz day 9

Only had a bit of time to FMQ today. This piece is a quilt shawl with pockets at each end, for remote control, hand cream, kleenex etc. Size is 22 x 72, the idea came from a McCall's quilting magazine, but I didnt follow block pattern in magazine.

I learned a valuable lesson - it would have been fine without any batting. The chenille and batting were very difficult to FMQ. Broke several needles so I only did a limited amount of quilting. This is for the Festival, I think it would make a nice gift! The block centers were preprinted, so it was quite fast to make. I used a variegated thread.
