What was your inspiration?
The love of Lemoyne Star and as I had made quilts for a couple of sick fur babies, I thought it was time the "well" ones got a quilt too! Finn is a very special little lad whom we met when he was nearly a year old. 2 homes hadn't worked out for him, he desperately wanted to be loved and I wanted to keep him but alas the Sassy one wasn't impressed. He ended up with a friend of mine so I still get to see him regularly... lucky me! He's such a delightful little Shihtzu that it's hard to imagine how anyone could be cruel to him. He's always such a happy wee chap.
What are you most proud of?
I adapted the star to the size I wanted, not to mention gaining confidence in using stencils!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Fun doing little projects!
