Happiness Is......

.... a finished quilt....


When I got these lovely fabrics from Sharon in the OASS swap in November


and I saw Dawn Hays pattern in the Homespun Magazine (Issue 12.10) I knew they would work together beautifully..... you can see the start of this quilt HERE ...


I quilted around each of the flowers...


and did feathers on the border ....


and straight line quilting in the coin parts....


we have had some rather dull grey days so a gentle sun on a pretty quilt...


is going to cheer up any day.....


Thanks to Sharon for getting me out and about using some new colours of fabrics and thanks to Dawn for a lovely pattern..

there's enough fabric to make the cushion in the pattern shown in the top picture.....


Righto, Gotta Go.....  new quilt to start
