Thank you for waiting patiently, the sunshine was noticeable by its absence today, but at least it wasn't raining or snowing, or both; so, ta-dah...
I love this quilt, there's no denying it.
Each + is made of a different print, with my favourite, the white pins, smack bang in the middle. I got the Sew Stitchy layer cake from Aneela back when I attended her embroidery class in September last year. It reminds me of a happy day back when things were feeling really bleak.
As I mentioned the other day, I love the backing too; I have never made a simple pieced back like this before, why?! I think it complements the busy front perfectly.
So that's my fourth quilt made this year, and I am champing at the bit to know what the next #QAL will be. In the meantime, I have the Siblings Together fabrics sorted and 11 out of 12 Brit Bee blocks almost ready for attention, so I am hoping for No.5 by the end of the month!
