windmills in the wind


I've been terribly slack with posting a picture of my latest quilt - but I finally got outside this afternoon to take some shots and after battling the wind, I got a couple of good ones! And I thought it would be a good entry for the Park City Girl Fall/Autumn Quilt Festival.

I started this quilt a little while ago - during Easter this year actually. I found the white tulip print material in Melbourne when I was there for Christmas last year and knew it would be great in our lounge room which is predominantly blue. After free motion quilting my first quilt over Easter, I got very inspired and starting cutting fabric up for this one immediately. And now it is finally done.
It was quilted by Belinda of Eucalypt Ridge Quilting and I just love how it turned out - thankyou so much Belinda!

I didn't want to buy any extra fabric - hence the pieced back, but I am glad I did it now. It makes the quilting a real feature and I love it almost as much as the front.


And now I am off to snuggle underneath it on the couch and watch the first season of Grey's Anatomy - I love Sundays!

Make sure you pop over here and check out all the other AMAZING quilts in the quilt festival! And grab a cuppa first!
