Excuse a little excitement but I am quite positively happy about this quilt and how it looks in my lounge room. Pardon the lighting, but I have just put it up on the wall this minute and it is getting dark.
Want to see it a bit closer?
I started this after Christmas. My DD gave me some fabric and I wanted to use some of it in the quilt. I had picked up a lot of quilting books on freecycle and the inspiration for this design was in one of them. I wanted to have a quilt that celebrated an Australian summer, so the Bougainvillea applique was exactly right. I have some wonderful Australian fabrics in the quilt.
There were a few firsts for me in this quilt. First applique in a quilt, first serious attempt at stippling.
Lots of happiness now it is done. WooHoo!
(I already have an idea for the next one....oops I may be obsessed!)
