A new quilt

I love my new quilt, its so warm and snuggly, I made this quilt from 3 charm packs and just added some sashing and a border. The end result is beautiful.

I quilted a pattern all over called Country garden,I thought it was a bit French looking which went well with the French General fabric which by the way is called Pom Pom de Paris. Its very pretty.









This afternoon I picked some lilacs from our garden the scent is beautiful.

I plan on a big sewing day tomorrow. I am working on a few christmas gifts which are looking great but I can't share them just yet.

I hope you are having a good weekend.
