Circles




A few days ago I was finally sewing the binding for the quilt which has my focus last weeks. 




Here it is, finished and well. 


The front and the backing.



Detail


Fabric with memories. Do you see the ducks. A blog reader send it to me when my dad passed away.
The strawberries is one of my first fabrics.
The flower fabric on the right from the ducks is from a bedsheet from the first bed of DD3.
This quilt is made for DD3. 


The windmill fabric is a gift from a quilt shop when I ordered fabrics. I love it so much that I use a little piece in almost every quilt I made since I got the fabric. 
In this quilt are a lot of 'ugly fabrics' which I never liked, (like the one under the windmill, and the purple on the picture below) and somehow in this quilt they work :-)  


The orange fabric is from a little piece of a friend.
The yellow is one of my first reproduction fabrics.


 And here it is on DD3's bed. The place where it belongs.


The quilt is machine pieced and hand quilted. The batting is quilters dream request 100% cotton.

I love this quilt, it is such a happy, sweet and cheerful quilt, love the colors and the stories behind some of the fabrics. DD3 will be so happy with this! And it looks perfect on her bed. She can dream sweet dreams underneath all this loveliness!

I LOVE this quilt Lucy. It is pretty, happy and full of the most amazing fabrics. I must do a post of mine, it is still packed in a box from when we moved last year. Congratulations on such a beautiful quilt and always being an inspiration to other quilters around the world.

Wat een prachtige scrap quilt is dit geworden. Er zit zoveel kleur en blijdschap in deze quilt, wat een plezier om dit op je bed te hebben liggen. Alle stofjes lopen zo mooi in elkaar over dat zelfs de lelijke eendjes mooie zwanen lijken. Jij hebt echt het talent om van iedere quilt een TOPquilt te maken.Dikke proficiat!!!!

So LOVELY!! But I wonder, since you machine pieced your quilt, how do you sew the curves?

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

Glorious......Such a wonderful feeling your quilts all have! How fascinating the fabrics are!

Patricia said...

This quilt looks so lovely ! And is now on exactly the right place !

Lynne said...

My favorite kind of quilt, scrappy and full of memories. It's funny how when we use some of our "ugly fabric", it just blends in nicely and doesn't offend at all! Love the blue windmills.

serendipity said...

So beautiful. It looks perfect on the bed.

Janet said...
