Friday Flaunt a day early


This is a top I have completed today. The quilt will be a Quilt from the Heart for Bayside Quilters in Melbourne. The fabric with the yellow birds and thistles was one from BQ selection of fabrics for members to use for the QFTH quilts the others fabric were sourced from my stash. Now for the backing and quilting, not sure whether my machine quilting is good enough for this quilt have to think about that.
This quilt is one of those quilts that sort of come together as you make the blocks. It ended up 53.5" square. The design was governed by the amount of the feature fabric I had -1 metre. I found 2 fat quarters of the Wattle fabric added some black and yellow, sewed 1/2 square triangles, cut 6 1/2 squares. first border is 2" with 6 1/2 strips of wattle fabric second border is 4" finished with 1/2 square triangles as cornerstones.

The fabrics work so well together in that lovely design, simplicity is often the key to a stunning finish.
