Hot Cross last!

Well this only took about five years to finish! And then another four weeks waiting for a decent break in the grotty 'summer' weather to get outside for photos!

I first patched this quilt top in 2012, using a layer cake of Me and My Sister for Moda's 'Amelia' design, with a gorgeous white and black polka dot sashing fabric.

I used a Moda Bakeshop pattern by Wendy Poling - very easy to do and so effective. Just after New Year I finally found time (thanks to all the rain that was falling) to sit and watch lots of tennis on TV and get this quilted up.  I used a 'daisy-chain' stipple all over and in the outer border I did a wavy line/vine with leaves. 

It is a single bed quilt measuring 55" x 65" and the backing is a lavender flannel.

March 2018: the lucky recipient - Miss Ruby Morris...Happy 8th Birthday Ruby!! Apparently she is very pleased with the colour and softness of the purple flannel backing!

And "kia ora" to all my visitors from Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday linky party!
