Lisa the Unicorn [A Finish]

I finished this quilt a few weeks ago - even though I'm not blogging very regularly, I am sewing lots still, and even finishing a few things! This is Lisa the Unicorn pattern by Elizabeth Hartman.

I started it over a year ago... but ignored it for long periods of time. I got the quilt top finished towards the end of my maternity leave, then ignored it some more, until a few weeks ago when I finally got round to basting it and quilting it. The manes are all selected from my stash and the faces are made from Dashwood Twist in either gold on white or silver on white. When it came to quilting, I free motioned pebbles on the unicorns face, match-stitcks on the manes, spirals on the horns and a large scale stipple on the background, all in matching threads.

This is now squirreled away in a cupboard until Christmas when it will be Jessica's. If I get a quilt for Mia finished between now and then! This is a Finish Along finish. You can find my original list here.

Very pretty. I hope you get Mia's quilt finished in time, and this one too.
