I'd recently made another Turning Twenty quilt (this is a great pattern by Tricia Cribbs) and had left it in the very capable hands of Daisy May Quilting. As well as doing the longarm quilting, Daisy May Quilting also supplied the extra wide fabric for the backing (a Moda tone on tone fabric that really is gorgeous) and wadding (I'd chosen bamboo which drapes beautifully). After just a few weeks (their turnaround is very quick) it was ready and boy did I get a surprise when I went to collect it. This was made with a selection of 25 fat quarters of the Little Sweetheart collection by Edyta Sitar for Laundry Basket Quilts which I had bought from Cross Patch last year, and really does look pretty. As I wanted a larger quilt, to drape over the sides of the bed in my spare room, I usde 25 fat quartes and used a 5x5 block layout. This beauty finishes at 86" square, and I really am thrilled to bits with it as you can see! The tricky part is going to be decidinng which fabric to chose for the binding, as I have a few options to chose from. Decisions decisions!
