Blogger's Quilt Festival

I haven't done this is quite a while, but today I'm linking up an
extra special quilt, to the Blogger's Quilt Festival. 
Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival - AmysCreativeSide.com
 
Some friends and I got together to make a quilt for another
friend who is unwell at the minute.
We wanted something bright. Something to cheer her up.
Something to cuddle under when days are tough.
We took a pattern we found at allpeoplequilt.com,
made a few adjustments to the size and added
our own applique designs. 
 I'm not sure I can give you very many details on this quilt -
most of the fabrics are scrappy bits and pieces!
 
 

Made by: Lisnaweary Quilts bee! (Eileen, Mary, Sheila and me!)
Finished size: 56" x 72"
Pattern: Based on Fast & Fusible Daisy Quilt, allpeoplequilt.com
Quilted: Free Motion Quilted Loops by me on a Janome Horizon
