Finished Quilt for Grandie#5

~ my first finish for 2011 ~

~ this has been such a fun quilt to make ~


the individual blocks were on my blog HERE and HERE and HERE

~ it was lovely to have my DIL to help stitch some of the blocks
and choose the perfect backing ~


~ it's soft and snuggly ~


~ to wrap a huggly buggly ~


~ I quilted in the ditch around the pictures so you can find the shapes on the back ~


~ yup, I like love it ~


~ I will be very sad to see it leave this weekend ~


~ but it's going to a good home ~

The pattern is by Lynette Anderson and called "On The Farm".... I made a few minor adaptions eg instead of buttons I did satin stitch and one of the chooks I converted to a turkey....... (since they are on a turkey farm!)
