Fat Quarter Fizzy for Lizzy

This is one of my Littlest Thistle Finish Along 4th Quarter challenge projects: I love this one SO much, I went a bit photo mad! And it is Spring, so I wanted to have some spring flowers in the photos too...and I am also linking up with Crazy Mom's Finish It Up Friday and Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation and Modern Tradition Quilts...
I completed my version of the Fat Quarter Fizz pattern...(update: to see who received it click here!)
...remember, when I'd first laid it out I wasn't happy and did some random cuts to resize some of the rows, so have renamed it Fat Quarter Fizzy, (as that was preferable to Fat Quarter Fizzer!)

It is made from two fat quarter bundles of  the Merry Little Girls Stonehenge range by Deborah Edwards and Linda Lucovico for Northcott Fabrics (purchased online at the FQ Shop) and bound with a purple polka dot cotton (which I think was from the Amelia range by My Sister and Me).
The back has a lovely white/cream flannel with tiny pink and green flowers. I quilted it all over with loops and flowers in a multi-colour thread (purple, turquoise, green, pink) on the front (which ran out right on the last stitch with about one inch of thread left - phew!) and a white thread on the back.

The completed quilt is about 58" x 68", just right for a large lap quilt or single bed.

And while wandering around the garden I HAD to take these photos...the peonies began to open up last week...

Just to prove to Brian that Rumbles DOES go outside...

Latest finish!

More details later...the iPad is running out of power!
Today the purple polka dot binding was put on by machine.
