I have finished it! The binding was sewn on while eating fish and chips on the sea front....not the best combination, but I'm always "Last minute dot com". The freezer paper was ironed on to the front of the fabric and it worked out quite well for my first attempt. Thanks again to Erin of Why Not Sew for the free paper pieced Kitchen Aid Mixer pattern. As for the Quilt Club challenge it was won by a very deserving Gill who made an impressive fabric folded necklace.
I also finished a pair of these Cath Kidston pillow cases to match my quilt cover. I thought I wouldn't ever need a pillowcase tutorial, but this one is very good - even though I fussy cut the flap and it flip-flopped to the other side!
