I started this quilt back in July 2011 as part of the quilt along at Don't Call Me Betsy. It was put on the back burner for well over a year after my templates had printed incorrectly and I subsequently cut my pieces wrong. The resulting mess could not be fixed at that time as my level of experience wasn't up to it, but here I am now with a gorgeous quilt!
Made with mostly Denyse Schmidt Picnic Fairgrounds prints in the blue, green and red colourways, with Kona White for the blocks.
The back is a gorgeous Cath Kidston stars duvet cover.
I quilted a diamond pattern radiating out from the centre of the quilt every 4", I marked it out with masking tape and it came together so quickly. I'm really pleased with the outcome as I'm nervous of the quilting stage, my little machine doesn't always cope too well.
It was tricky to catch the quilting in the light today so I have 2 photos for your perusal!
The quilt finishes up at 50"x60" and is off to Devon to the newest addition to our family, a beautiful new baby girl called Mia born on 4th June.
