It's time to finally reveal the very last of the Four Seasons Quilt Swap quilts - received and sent.
Last week I got a big surprise and found a squishy parcel jammed into the letterbox. Lo and behold it was my Summer quilt from my friend the superwoman Fiona.
Isn't it just wonderfully summery and gorgeous!
It's beautifully quilted so that it puffs up like little pillows - you really want to touch this quilt.
And the fabrics - so very Fiona - deliciously vintage and super pretty!
And a sweet little label.
Thanks Fiona. I absolutely LOVE it! It will be hung in Daphne's room where it will make us all very cheerful!
And now to the quilt that I have sent far, far away.
I wanted my Summer quilt to have a similar look and feel to my other Four Seasons quilts. I'd like to think that they would look a little like a set if they were all together. I love doing applique and the single image I kept coming back to was 'the summer dress'.
This time I used my machine a bit more and did the applique with the buttonhole stitch.
The dress fabric is one of the stunning new fabrics in Anna Maria Horner's new range 'Garden Party'. It just seemed the perfect colours for a summer dress.
I tried a little bit of free motion quilting, which is not super flash. I wanted it to look like wall paper in a girl's bedroom.
And to finish, a little coat hanger.
And that is the last of the Four Seasons Quilt Swap quilts. Thanks Margaret - it's been fun!!
