I just had to have a little play with my new soldering iron. After listening to Yvonne Brown's lecture at Palmerston North's Tote and Gloat what an amazing lady and so inspirational!
I have made this into a 12" x 12" to add to my collection. I am finding the 12" x 12" a good way yo try out new technique's.

There were amazing quilts in the show and tell in the morning. Lots of shops to shop at and another view of all the lovely quilts.
