'Wild Thing' you make my heart sing..............

Here it is - Kristy's Birthday quilt! I went out to the beach today (before I gave it away) to take some pics and they turned out great!

This quilt is made using 2 Moda Charm Packs and I made this one using the Simple Abundance range! I totally *love* it and will have to make myself one too I think!


And, I must show you some close ups of my quilting...... flowers & loops - this is the first try of flowers and I am very pleased with the way they turned out!

And, in the outside borders I decided to 'experiment' and do some swirly things and it turned out ok too!

Kristy loved it which was great! She was a little shocked as I had teased her and told her I was making a Table Runner lol!
On other news, to all you Tassie Bloggers (or Tassie readers), there are 2 spots left in the Kerry Swain Workshop for November..... now this is GREAT fun. A full weekend of sewing, no ironing or cutting involved! I went last year and had a ball! If you are interested contact Pauline from Calico Crossroads. Also, Pauline is nearly up to her 100th post, so she is having a Giveaway to celebrate - pop on over to her blog to see what you have to do...... easy peasy!
