'Sunshine & Daisies" Quilt... Finished, Woo Hoo!

Do you ever have times when you just really love what you make?!
Well, I'm having one of those times right now.
I. Love. This. Quilt.

Making this quilt has been more than just the sewing for me... it's been a real therapy... it's been fun & it's definitely been something outside my usual choices of design & colours.


I wasn't convinced I liked the birds around the border & initially decided not to use them... but in the end the birds won & for fun I did one different to the others, which you see on the right below.
 Don't fall over, look at the backing colour:
And yes I even love that too!

"Oh, let me be in this photo shoot"... funny little Site Manager


 

Thank you Toni at Me & My Red Boots for such a cheery design.
Toni is an Aussie designer of quilts & softies... great designs & fun characters. I hope you go check out her site, it'll make you smile! (no she's not paying me!) 

 'Sunshine & Daisies' is about 64inches square, & is certainly going to bring sunshine to the dreary winter days ahead.

Beautiful cheery quilt. I have to ask - did you actually put it in the soil?! It should be on display not roll7ng around the garden! Lovely job.
