Le jardin tah dah..........

This quilt has been finished for several months now...........but it got rushed off for a display and then I just haven't got around to showing you it finished...........snapping the pics it is either raining or I have hung the washing out on the line...........so with a shove from Maree I got it done this morning..............
TAH DAH
Le Jardin is the pattern, made it at Nundle at one of my retreat weekends............
it is so soft and pretty............
love the quilting..............this one was quilting beautifully by Christine - Once upon a Quilt.............I just love the pattern she used in the quilting.............
and back a few posts I had a photo of Fairy Girls iris............well it just keeps popping up more and more flowers...... 
one of my wattles is flowering madly..............more photos later i hope - it is humming with bees........I snapped quite a few photos I just need to go through them.....
hope your having a beautiful Sunday it is glorious here.......
Catch you later..............

  7. Oh I know what you mean when you say "finally an OPAM finish". It's almost embarrassing whe throughout the month you have been flat out with nithing to show for it : ((. Onto better things though, I just love the simplicity of your quilt, the colours, the quilting, the lot - just beautiful. Well done you now go and sit down and have a rest.
