my friday favourite #11

Happy Friday
It's been a bit colder these last few nights - time for another quilt on the bed


I pulled out this quilt today. Some of you will have seen it before
however, I thought I'd share with you just why it's a favourite of mine



It's one I bought as a quilt top at a show many years ago and was pieced by Juliet Taylor
It was a well constructed and colourful quilt top, a version of Kaffe's 'Fonthill Quilt'.
I had it quilted by Annette de Raat and then added the binding

Here's a few close-up pics, there's so much to look at.
Like that lovely 'cheddar' yellow for starters . . .




the different blue fabric combos . . .



and the little 'pops' of minty green . . .  




this unexpected softer pretty yellow print . . .



all those small 2" HST piecing in the centre panel . . .



and the assorted traditional pinks & purples . . .



Yep, it may be old fashioned but I do love it

hmm-m-m- it's quite a bright feature in the bedroom, hope mr D can cope :)




How about you,
do you have an old-ish quilt that you can't bear to part with too?
