Blueberry Forest

I have finished a proper quilt top! Here it is:
It is a simple patchwork, because I've never made one before, and I think I should do it at least once! Also it was fairly quick, which, in the time I squeeze my sewing into, is important. It's a 12th birthday present for my niece. The fabrics are cute, the colours girly, but the blueberry and cranberry colours give it sufficient 'darkness' to last her through her teens I hope.

 The feature fabrics are Enchanted Forest, and I've added some Amy Butler, Denyse Schmitt, random polka dots, all sorts. So I've called it Blueberry Forest and made a proper label - sorry no pic.

 I've got half way through the quilting - and ran out with hubby to snap it while the sun shone. In other news I was so chuffed to win this great giveaway from the lovely folks at The Village Habedashery.
It's a fat quarter bundle of True Colours in Green. And they sent a lovely card! (my name is Esther, I blog under my nickname!)

I can't wait to make something. The only thing is they are crying out for a few blues, pinks and purples...I think I'd better shop (it was payday yesterday after all).

I also want to say how much I enjoy seeing all the things my fellow (much more prolific) bloggers make and write about. When life is crazy and work is stressful, which it is, it's so uplifting to see so much creativity. So thank you!
