My Liberty Quilt!

 
Oh, so beautiful! Girlfriends and I celebrated our Christmas Lunch yesterday and just look at the beautiful quilt they have made for me. It all started earlier in the year when I was trying to plod along with Liberty Lawn prints trying to make this beautiful log cabin and pinwheel design by Miss Print - thank you so much Kaye. Lots of little pinwheels and narrows strips,goodness knows how many different prints - well, Girlfriends! took over for me and it is now finished except for the binding and I will show lots more pics then - aren't my friends just the best and I will treasure this quilt forever!
Here's the Girls - top/left Jan, just looking like she has puckered up, lol! Gwen with the face of an angel, and our dear Shari of Mummsyblossom's World. Below starting from the left - Robin who has put sooo much work into the organization, a wonderful friend. Then we have Moi!, then Barb, being silly, I know but I just love it, I knew she was up to some nonsense - Barb quilted my quilt and we are all so lucky to have Barb with us - a great organizer, too and sort of Mother Hen to all of us, and I mean that in the nicest way!
This is my pressie from Secret Santa - just gorgeous, English bone china and a very large size cup - I'm a coffee drinker, so it will have to be a coffee cup - I will feel sooo posh!
I'm battling away with new computer and seem to be getting there though very time consuming, let's hope all the pennies drop soon - for now Happy Day!
