Summer Days...

Thinking I would really love to make a quilt using these fabrics that I picked up the other day...but having trouble with what pattern!!

Can you help? Any ideas as to what I should do.... best idea I will try...

The fabrics remind me so much of the Australian summer...beautiful blue skies... bright yellow daisies and crisp green leaves...

What do you think?

"Sugar Flower" Quilt

I had some 4 1/2" squares left over from a quilt that I made recently, fabrics that came from the Lecien fabric range "Sugar Flower".

So I decided that instead of cutting them up or using them in an applique quilt, I wanted to show case them to their best!!

But I had to add a little appliqued heart...because that's me!!

Using some white homespun as sashing, I framed the squares and then added a beautiful aqua floral border from the same range as the fabrics... looks rather cute, if I say so myself!!
