I had this quilt in my head but it didn't turn out quite like I imagined.
Sometimes that happens doesn't it.
I had seen a lot of lovely plus sign quilts on the net
and I thought I could make one from two charm packs and a bit of yardage.
Well it turns out that all charm packs are not created equal,
so therefore my quilt is not exactly as I wanted it.
It's still a lovely quilt and it's a lovely colour scheme,
but the plus signs don't stand out as well as I imagined they would.
Luckily Shenleigh quilted it within an inch of it's life,
and it looks fantastic.
I took pictures of last years quilt on this self same fence
as our local supermarket was being pulled down,
I remember standing in the freezing cold taking pics with tears in my eyes.
Today the sun was shining and the new supermarket is rising from the dust.
What a difference a year makes, thank God.

It's just so lovely.
My SIL is an amazing mum, and incredible hostess and a loyal friend.
She is so busy doing things for others,
she doesn't have much time for herself.
I love making her a quilt each year, it's the one thing I can do,
that I know she will love.
I'm hoping she will love this one too!
