"Posy" Churn Dash

You know those little butterflies that you get when love is new and fresh?  (And, er... that last well into your tenth year of marriage? ;)  )  Yeah.  That's how I feel about this little quilt.  Be still my beating heart.


I think that it is just so perfect.  One reason I love it is because most of the fabric was given to me.  For free!  And from different people!  So I put it all together, did a little churn dash pattern from Camille's book, and voila!


Look at that center block... a print from Sarah Jane's newest "Wee Wander" line of fabric.  I just had to sneak it in!


The backing and binding are from a line called "Posy" by Aneela Hoey.  They are just fantastic fabrics!  Little girls reading "The Big Book of Adventures for Girls" and playing with hens!  Oh goodness... I love a sweet farm scene.


The binding is machine-stitched to the front, then hand-stitched to the back.  Perfectly mitred corners, if I do say so myself.  :)

And then there's the quilting.  My friend, Anne, really outdid herself on this one.  Can you see the big flowers and swirly patterns?  She did a really fabulous job.


I mentioned in my preview post that I was going to have a hard time parting with it.  It's true, but I think I'm ready.  It needs to go... my husband doesn't appreciate sharing my affection. With a quilt... of all things.  Help save my marriage and kids with brain tumors...
