Back of the quilt.


This quilt is for my SIL's 50th :))
Have to do the label now!

Finish #2 Lantern of Light



This is what its looked like a few weeks ago, I don't have a design-wall and I lay them out on the floor to arrange the blocks. This is what happens when I don't shut the doors to the sewing/games room. Our 2 little dogs like to walk/run over my blocks :P




viola... all done :))
Pattern: Lanterns of Light by Julie Wallace
Fabric: Japanese prints from my stash
Size: 60" x 70"


This is my first QAYG quilt.


Backing fabric is directional so I cut it into strips which are length of the quilt.

Finished Quilt


I finished piecing this quilt top back in June 2014 (posted it here) but finished FMQ a few months ago and Annabelle has been using it since I finished it ;)


It is a large quilt and I was feeling defeated FMQ by it so it took me a while. I FMQ on my Bernina 750QE which has a larger throat then normal domestic machine but this quilt being so large I did struggle a little. 


It all worth it though :)) 






These panels are included in the fatquarter bundle, Wrens and Friends, which I use for this quilt. I couldn't chop it all up to put it in the top so I try to work out how it use it. So this is how I came up with! I think it's pretty cool (at least my daughter agrees :))
