Early March ... and another finish

Wow, I am really on track to do 12 UFO's in 2012 (my own challenge) infact, I might finish more than 12 at this rate!

This quilt is called "Tea or Coffee" and is a Millamac design. I started this as a group class with the designer, Sally, last April and had to miss a couple of classes as I travelled overseas for my holidays.  I never caught up and everyone finished their quilts but mine languished so it is nice to be able to showcase it here.

The blocks are all hand appliqued and the quilt is hand quilted along with gumleaves which I quilted on the border. Here are a couple of close-ups:
These are the kookaburras sharing a cuppa and a laugh!

These emus don't have arms to hold cups so a milkshake with straws is the way to go.  Aren't they glamerous girls?!

I will be putting more pics on my own blog at Bits 'n Bobs

Thank you for looking and thank you to all the inspirational comments I have received on my other finishes.
