Don't you just love it when you find a finished quilt top ready to quilt - and that's just what happened at the weekend! I'd been sorting through all my boxes of fabric and my daughter Alice commented on some fabric that she saw in one of the boxes. So I pulled it out to show her - and discovered that it was this beautiful quilt top that I'd pieced together about 5 or 6 years ago! I'd bought this as a kit from my local quilt shop, Quilters Haven, and can't even remember the name of the pattern - all I can remember was that it was a kit by Timeless Treasures and included this collection of beautiful Tonga batiks in greens and blues and purple and I couldn't resist it! After it was machine pieced together I'd put it away, thinking it was FAR too big to quilt myself, and had forgotten all about it. And it's big. Really big. 80" square big. So on Thursday I'm off to see Janette, to get it long arm quilted. Now I wonder what other hidden treasures I can find in my stash!!
