A Finished Quilt

Hey there. Just wanted to share some photos of a quilt I finished in October, and am only getting to post about it now!! I am totally in love with this quilt and have in on my bed, I love walking past it and just running my hand over the stitching. I love this feeling of satisfaction and pride in a item that I have spent hours and hours on!!

The quilt is based on the pattern "Jelly Filled" by Thimble Blossoms. Camille Roskelley is my quilting Hero and she is the one that initially got me interested in quilting through her amazing blog SIMPLIFY. Do yourself a favour, go and check it out.

The fabric I used on this quilt is Awesome by Sandy Gervais. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this fabric!!

So here is my quilt:

Congratulations Rene' your quilt is a stunner!!!
I've been a quilter for some years now The way you feel when you see your quilt is probably the reason most quilters spend hours cutting large pieces of fabric, reoganizing it and sewing it together again!!!!
Hope you make many more!

Oh Rene, you clever girl. Just love this quilt of yours. Well done, you have every reason to feel proud of yourself. I'd probably also run my hand over it each time I walked past it. STUNNING! TFS, hugs Sharon
