"Midsummer Garden"

Hello,

Last night I was able to sew the binding on my latest quilt. It is a design by Gail Pan
I was lucky enough to win this pattern from Gail called "Midsummer Garden". The pattern involved a fair amount of hand sewing. I used a variegated thread to machine quilt the quilt which suited the pattern. The size of the finished quilt is 46 inches by 46 inches.With the temperature falling to minus 1 here last night there is nothing quite like a quilt to snuggle up to.Tomorrow I will post some interesting photo's of where we went to today. Thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments regarding the veggie garden. It is much appreciated.

Happy sewing.

Very summery quilt design. Love the colors. Here in California there is no need for blankets here to cover up with. Just went out to water my container plants. May see some high 90's here. Have a great week.

This is a lovely quilt. You were lucky to win the pattern.
Did temperatures really drop to -1C ? Can't remember having cold days like this when we live in Australia. You really need a cosy quilt then!
