Tra-Lah! Fairy Quilt Finished!

It has taken some time but here we are - all shampooed and spun dry - nice and warm and fluffy just waiting for the cooler weather. Heidi will be pleased! The main fabrics are by Saffron Craig - a wonderful Australian designer - I love the use of colour and whimsy about her designs - check out her latest!

I used Thermore for the batting and cut it the same size as the top squares - I like to make these quilts that way!

With a heavy heart, one cannot help but feel so much sympathy for our neighbours in Christchurch, New Zealand - so much loss, pain and suffering, God bless!

Your quilt turned out very beautiful. Since you cut the batting the same size as the squares, does that mean the batting is included in the ruffled/laundered edges?

I am so saddened by ALL of the weather and natural disasters that plaque our world right now. The devastation is so overwhelming. Judy C

That would be devastating to see that church crumble.

Your quilt has turned out beautifully.
Christchurch is a devastating tragedy and we in NZ can't get our heads around it all - too hard to comprehend the extent of it.

Janet said...

Lurline, the quilt is wonderful and cosy, I love the colours.
The Cathedral is the centerpiece of the city, it's hard hearing about the tragedy and heartwarming at the same time with the rescues and the help from our cousins, the Aussies, it's the Anzac spirit.
