finishing my quilts

Thank you all so much for caring & asking if we are safe after my last post.
On a more cheerful note, I thought I would share my recent finish




'daisy days'
All done & dusted, just in time for Xmas... {sigh} it's only taken me since May 2015!
I guess it's a little bit old fashioned but that's ok, I still love this happy mix of fabrics...







I had it quilted in an allover pretty daisy pattern by Annette from WildCotton Quilting
- lots of lovely texture here now!




Each block is 8"
and the finished quilt ended up around 60" square







I used a template set made by Meredithe from pomegranateandchintz to make my daisies
The backing is made up of a scrappy mixture of green florals




and the binding is a pretty floral stripe from Denyse Schmidt
- a quilt all made from my stash!

quilts make the best gifts, don't you think!
Linking up my finish with Amanda Jean here at crazymomquilts
and with Debbie here  for tgiff

Have a lovely weekend!

  7. I think this my be one of my most favorite modern-made quilts, Linda. To me it has a vintagey-modern feel and I love everything about it: the fabrics, the bright colors, the layout, the sashing. I think it's fabulous. Congrats on the finish.
