A September Finish # 15 ....


My quilt is done


Butterfly Garden - design by Leanne Beasley....

full of butterflies .....


and daisies....


and lovely words....


and sweet stitcheries....


looks perfect with spring growth .....




I used a wool/polyester blend - it gives the extra loft I wanted
you can see the quilting on the back - I did lots of stitch in the ditch around the applique - and some details in them... meandering over the rest and some fun quilting in some of the backstitched blocks


this picture is not so clear but I did a mini feather wreath and little feathers in the triangles


fits over the top of a queen bed  comfortably....


This quilt was my first needleturn work ..... each block was such a pleasure to make....

 I will miss doing it.... 

This was a UFO from last year... so it goes towards my Sew It's Finished item for September

# 15 sounds like I have done so well... I had a list of 30 at the beginning of the year... so half way through but I don't think the year is going to be long enough to finish them all

Righto, Gotto Go...... need to get out yet another UFO hiding away....
