A cold Sunday Morning

 Oh boy its cold this morning, it was -2 when I got out of bed. I should have stayed there. Its a lovely sunny day though and a thick frost everywhere, so I reckon by lunch time it will be at least oh..... 5 degrees. Time to turn the fire up I think.  I have a beautiful quilt to share with you today. I have been working on this dresden quilt for well over 12 months.
 It was on eof those projects that I lost interest in for awhile then I'd get it out again and do a bit more. Finally its finished. Well almost, need to bind it yet. I wanted to show you the beautiful quilting that was done by Sarah at patchworks plus, its all custom quilted and it turned out amazing. I have never had a quilt of mine custom quilted before.
 Its a bit hard to see the full detail but each block has a floral pattern.
 I really love this quilt and I am looking foreward to getting the binding on so I can use it on these cold mornings.
 Speaking of bindings, I got this quilt bound as well. I took a little trip to the park for some smart photography. It was good fun.



I am thinking of a new design to use my new Hello Darling fabric bundle by Bonnie & Camille, its such a pretty range. I love their fabrics.
Ok, its time for a nice hot cup of tea to warm me up.
Have a wonderful day and I hope you find some sewing time.

Beautiful quilts there and perfect time for them to be completed. They will keep you warm. : )
We have had some very cool days here and I'm enjoying it. It will become unbearably soon enough. Your new stack of fat quarters look like a lot of fun colors. Enjoy!
Blessings,
