Almost a quilt

I spent 24 hours with these girls on the weekend. Always lots of fun, copious amounts of food & some serious stitching productivity. I worked non-stop on this quilt:
Awful photos as it is a miserable, dull day here, but you get the idea. Just need to add a white border & this top will be done.
The pattern is 'Ava Rose' by Hatched & Patched, the fabrics mostly 'Barefoot Roses' by Tanya Whelan from this stash that has been sitting around looking pretty for far too long!

  12. I don't think it's possible to take a bad picture of a quilt? The setting with the white sashings makes it so crisp and allows those lovely fabrics to just shine!

  14. A lovely pattern and fabric choices.
    I especially love the little red polka dot corners of each square.
    Really adds a little 'something' to the overall quilt.
