A Fairy Quilt

Thank you for all your kind comments and emails regarding my last post RPQ101 - Patchwork Piecing.  I was really pleased to hear that you do appreciate this kind "informative" posting.  Perhaps a series of RPQ101 may develop, although right now I don't feel like there is much more I have to offer.

Today just a picture post.

The Fantastic Fairies Quilt is finished:


 With a pieced backing:


Main backing fabric is Dandelions in Pink by Saffron Craig
The layout for the back is similar to this quilt by Jacquie from Tall Grass Prairie.

Quilted:


And with binding - machine stitched of course!

 
Binding:  Japanese import - Kei Honeycomb in Red

My Etsy Store has been updated, and it is there that you will find a listing for the Fantastic Fairies Quilt. SOLD
