Love.....

I apologise profusely for more pics of this quilt. I have bombarded Instagram (where I'm becsibbi) and twitter with them lately. Sorry. Can't help it.

 I fell in love with a line of fabric last year, and as a Xmas pressie to me, bought myself a layer cake of it. I searched the Moda Bakeshop for a 'layer cake friendly' pattern, where I found this. Consider me a very happy chappy.

Fast forward a few lots of months. The quilt top was done, but too many other things got in the way, and after all, it was only for me! It could wait. But a chance chat with an work colleague, and before I knew it, pics were shown and it was sold!

Thanks to good counseling from friends, and Twitter support, I have just delivered it to it's new owner! A girl about to turn 14. (Her mum bought it, paid, drove it home. It's a b'day surprise for a few weeks time).

So excuse me while I bombard my blog with pics of one of my fave quilts ever.....

 basting (and batting adjustments)

 the rain stopped for pics (happy animals as they aren't wet);

 back;
 

 awesome binding;



*sigh*. At least I have photos. Which, by coincidence, I had on my phone and when I showed a snap to my accountant (don't ask me how that happened, I have no idea) he pulled cash out on the spot and order a king size version!

Unfortunately I don't want yardage of Terrain, which is all I can find; so I'm going to use Cuzco
Not that I'd get bored anything, but any excuse as much beautiful fabric as possible!

Absolutely gorgeous! I follow you on IG and have 'liked' a few of the quilt pics but the pictures on a big computer screen make it look sooooo much better! Good work!!!

Gorgeous, and I love the backing as much as the front. Well done on earning a commission through your tax agent too!

Amazing! I think I have a new favourite quilt! And thanks for the link to the pattern - it's a good one and I hadn't noticed it before on the bake shop! Probably because I don't tend to buy layer cakes! (but oh, I will be now!!)
