More progress

My sewing room is a mess, one of the cats has 'lost' a mouse under the bookshelf and tomorrow morning a very tired Easter Bunny will have to distribute chocolates etc. on the deck... But I have all 'the bits' on the design wall, so tomorrow there are a few borders to sew on and the applique to iron on and the top is finished! Quite possibly my quickest top yet:-)
I really like how it has come together, the wonkiness of the pinwheels is sort of reflected in the wonky applique flowers and hearts. I will have to decide tomorrow of the name goes up on the top or down on the bottom end pf the quilt - anyone with a preference?
As for quilting I have looked around for some all-over design with flowers but haven't found anything that jumped out at me - maybe I do a variation on the branching design from christina at a few scraps. I'll have another look at that backing tomorrow :)
Sweet dreams everyone!

  2. I don't think it would matter where you put the name; really. It's a wonderful quilt... Thanks for your very sweet comment on my Blueberry Basket quilt...I greatly appreciate it.
