Size:  98.9 KBActually it's 25+1/2 hours but who's keeping track! It took 9 bobbins of sew fine thread. Used Glide for the top in a few colors. Two layers of batting. Hobbs 80/20 on bottom and because the top is white, I choose a white 6 oz poly. Love how it all turned out. I'm in the process of sewing the prairie points on now. Then there are buttons to be sewn on. So looking forward to sharing this with my quilt quild. It will be interesting to hear everyone's comments. I am thrilled with my winter project finished just in time for spring!

    It's lovely, the colours are so cheerful. Thank you for sharing it with us x

    Do you mind me asking if it's a pattern or your own design?

    Purchased the quilt "garden quilt" as a kit from keepsake quilting. designed by amy bradley at www.amybradleydesigns.com It was a $200 kit so it took me a few months to decide to spend that much $$. It was my winter project. finished just in time for spring. I have designed my own patterns but have no problem with someone else's designs when they are as adorable as this one is!

    I love it, what a beautiful work. I love how yours is more three dimensional, I wish I would have used two layers of batting on my quilt like this one!!! It was so much fun finding embellishment to use on it too! Especially the little kitten I found @ JoAnne's!!!

    Beautiful quilting! I've seen the quilt before, your's is stunning, and the quilting is spot on.

    Long arm or domestic?
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    your quilt is simply amazing. fantastic quilting, great job.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
