In case I didn't have enough quilts to finish.....

I decided to start another one!

Well before you call up the medical people and shuffle me off to my own private room I committed to this one ages ago.   The fabric was donated by Liz Allen to make a quilt for Siblings Together.

It is this lovely fabric here!

Now this fabric is not something I would normally buy and obviously I am missing a trick as I love how it looks with this pattern!

So yesterday after buying enough cream background fabric I got very busy cutting out.

Nice enough pattern but oops that is not quite right!




 That's better....



Then after a bit of HST magic .....so pretty, even if I say so myself!




Quilt in a day?  Well almost!  My sewing machine is now slowly cooling off - we were both steaming from the ears!

All blocks are done and are now stitched together - I just need to add a few borders and quilt it!! 



Maddie says: What??  Another quilt??  We really need one of those!  
Me:  It's ok Maddie this one is going to be given away!

edited to add:  Just looked again at the fabrics and particularly that top left/bottom right print!   No wonder I thought the fabric and pattern were suited - that print is the pattern!  Duh!
