HAPPY CHRISTMAS 2011 EVERYBODY

I have given this to myself as an early Christmas present. I am sharing the pictures with you though. This is a Quilt I have just finished, which was in the Popular Patchwork Magazine a while back, designed by the lovely Babs. 
Click on the blue Babs and it will take you straight to her Original Singing Garden Quilt. Just beautiful.

Truth be told I wasn't madly keen on it at first, but then I realised I didn't have to do it exactly as Babs had designed it, so I changed a few things to suit me and now it is finished. I love it. Thank you Babs for the idea.

Whole Quilt...
 Close up of Log Cabin block to which I added flowers...
 close up of the 'constant' block, nine of these...
 close up of setting triangle and the birds I quilted in the border,
plus the musical note binding
to acknowledge Babs 'SINGING GARDEN' Quilt...
 my stylised flowers and leaves, appliqued in two corners -
just quilted in other two...
 the back - hubby likes this, says it looks like a whole cloth quilt...
 close up of centre blocks and quilting -
you should know me by now,
there is a LOT of quilting on this...
 Quilted Birds and Feathers - Singing...
Thank you again to Babs for the idea, I absolutely love this now
It is a keeper
Hope you enjoyed the photos
Happy Christmas Everyone

Hi Jan,
Happy New Year..
I think this quilt is absolutely beautiful. I LOVE everything about it....the design...the colors...and the quilting. Is the quilting by machine or hand? Must have taken you awhile to do it...
You are an inspiration....
I got a new machine for Christmas and I must get busy and use it!!!!
