I made this for a swap, and she has received so I can finally post photos.  I think it looks juicy and like a slice of summertime sunshine, just right for making winter a littel less grey. 

I am really proud of this one and happy with how it came out!  i know the pattern isn't anyting too inventive, but I did plan it out all on my own and I am pleasantly surprised that it all worked out without having to cut anything off or add any fillers.

Ok... close up of the corner-


the entire quilt-


and I did a pantograpgh on this one on my quilting machine-


I did learn a bunch about pantos doing this and there are a few bobbles and wobbles but overall I am happy with the quilting on it.  This one I had a tough time letting go.... I really, really like it!  A good size, I think the fabrics are great and I backed it in flannel so it is a good nap quilt. 

let me know what you think!

I love your fabrics, and I think the simplicity of the pattern is a huge assest as it looks stunning.
