A Pretty Quilt for a Beautiful Girl!

With high temperatures here and quilts stored away, I have borrowed a quilt I made for grand-daughter, Ayesha, Christmas, 2007. I am under threat of death to make sure I return it to her! She just loves it and it is so warm!

Once again, I have used my favourite little 3" square pinwheel blocks - they look different in every quilt and certainly lend a sparkle! Though very simple, this is my own design. I have appliqued large cirles within circles in the bigger blocks!

This one is professionally machine-quilted and I am really happy with it - usually I hand-quilt or struggle with the machine - I think you will be able to see the daisy quilting on the daisy background fabric - cute, eh!
It is nice to see all the Blogland girls launching into 2009 with enthusiasm - so many great blogs to visit! I spent yesterday binding my Charisma quilt - just have the hanging sleeve to add today. It still feels like holidays around here - being a mining state, most Dads and Sons will return to work tomorrow and it is so hot out there, too!

♥ Happy Stitching ... Hugs ♥
