Scrappy Summer Quilt

Just finished my donation for our quilt guild auction. What do you think? The picture is not too good as I took it tonight, but it should give you an idea.

It was based on a design by Jillily Studio, then I added the vine, flowers, leaves, hearts, and the scrappy border. Red and blue buttons around the vine make fun berries.

It is 44.5" square. The quilting is pretty detailed, which you can see on the next picture. Between the vine and the border I quilted hearts, strung close together. Below the vine, I improvised as I went along. It took me a few afternoons to quilt it, as I only had two hours at a time.  It will look nice on someone's table...

I hope my friends like it, and that it will raise good money for the guild!

My first finished project in weeks! Celebration time... In the meantime, I have already completed 30 out of 48 blocks for the bed quilt.

How about you, what have you been up to lately?
