Modern Maple Quilt

Last year for my birthday Chrissy gave me a bunch of Christmas fabrics
(way to my heart = give me fabric!!)
and while we were living at Bronte Street while our house was being repaired
I decided to make them into a quilt.

(little did I know I was going to become a huge fan of QuiltDad)
Anyway the pattern is by Amanda
but it's the same simplicity but effectiveness that I like from the Beyond Neutral book.

I'm not sure but I think this might be the only piece of Tula Pink
that I've used. Her fabric is lovely, I wish I had more of it!
Anyway I made the top this time last year
and it finally got to the top of the quilting pile and I picked it up from Shenleigh yesterday.
 I sewed the binding on last night and it's all finished.

This morning we ducked out early to take pictures of it.
I've been wanting to take photos of a quilt in front of this wall for ages
but there is always heaps of cars there, so early it was.

I really like how nice and summery this Christmas quilt is,
just perfect for a New Zealand Christmas.
We will be camping this year for Christmas, I can't wait.

Here's the whole wall. Isn't it amazing.

 Sorry for the photo overload,
but it just looks so pretty!!!!
