    Totally different fabric and I love it. I love how you quilted your border. It looks just perfect. I hope your sister is all better now. Loved your pin reference.

    Thanks. I"m not sure of the peach ones, if they were Australian prints or not. and the side triangle fabric. but they went!
    I was just happy to get these fabrics cut and used up. i got tired of moving them every time I wanted to use my sewing room. Some of the fabrics were from swaps, some purchased.

    What a great use of fabrics that you want to keep in large pieces or large print fabrics. It's such a "simple" (not meaning easy) design that it really highlights the fabrics. The small black sashing just sets the whole thing off even more. Can you tell I love this quilt? Really!

    I like the layout you chose; I would not have thought of it. Hope your sis heals nicely and enjoys the quilt. If she doesn't like it, you can always send it to me! LOL

    Very unique fabric. You did it justice.

    Oh no more Aussie prints for me. I tried to use up the rest on the back of the quilt (which i forgot to take a photo of). I'd made one strip of pieced blocks and inserted that. I still have some floral prints left over though.

    I like those fabric prints, cool and refreshing, good job.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...
