Fair Square Finishing

For Fair & Square Round 21 (Oct 2010?) ShelleyP sent me the cutest squares which have been waiting patiently in my finishing drawer.  A couple of weekends ago, it came time and this is is how it all turned out… Gorgeous! 

Edited to add: The design is  “Animal Samplings” by Hillside Samplings.

Thank you, Shelley!

I have two more fair squares in the drawer to finish, then I’m all up to date.  My squares for Round 23 are stitched and ready for mailing to my partner before the end of this week.  Round 24 is a Blackbird Designs round and I’m really looking forward to it.

By the way, Jill  – Purple Peacock – who manages the Fair Square Exchange Group is taking new membership applications to revive the group.  If you’re looking for a fun, well organised and rewarding exchange to be a part of contact Jill – details on Fair Square Exchange blog.

Happy Stitching 😉

    Hi Pokua!
    I love those squares and you did a beautiful job finishing them. Do you happen to know the designer? I haven’t seen that peacock before.
    Thanks for giving the Fair Square blog a shout. I wish we could get more interest.
    Happy Stitching!

    That’s a wonderful finish. Just a couple of days ago I had this chart in my hands and put it on my soon-to-be-stitched pile.
