Not A Card In Sight...

... but I do have a crafty share :)

I am so excited and, if I do say so myself, quite chuffed and proud - I have made my first quilt!

Do you want to see?  LOL, rhetorical question really, because I am showing you anyway :)

The fabric is Marmalade, designed by Bonnie & Camille and I used 4 x charm packs cut in half for the quilt front.

(LOL, excuse the fingers and knees of my helper :))

I did a little piecing on the back for added interest. I love the quilting on this, it really shows up nicely on the back. It is a 3 leaf clover design.

 (The wind blew just as I was taking the photo and you can pretty much see the full outline of my hubby if you look close!)

I am so happy with how this turned out. I am not a sewer - I have had my machine for about 8 years and this is the first time I have used it on something other than cards!


I am differently hooked and am already planning my next one. Thanks for indulging me :)

Judith, this is beautiful! Did you do the clover quilting yourself, or do you have a friend who does it for you? I'm totally impressed. I think you ARE a sewer, and I can't wait to see your next one. :-)
