I have decided to enter my "Swoon" quilt from last year for the Spring 2013 BQF.The fabrics are from the Denyse Schmidt Daisy Mae range with an ivory solid as the background.
I began making this quilt late January 2012 and tried to do a block a month so that it was done by the end of the year - I really loved making these big 24" blocks.
This quilt is the largest that I have made so far and I had it quilted at our LQS "Rainbow Patchwork" in a swirly design, with a bamboo/cotton batting which has made the quilt so lovely and soft.It is coming into winter here in Australia now so we have this quilt on our bed and it is keeping us nice and warm at night. I chose a simple grey backing so that I can turn the quilt over in the evening when the cat sleeps on the bed so his grey fur wont show up at all.
