He's a cutie!

Well, I think so anyway ....

12 Days Christmas quilt

I have finished the '6 geese are laying' block for my 12 Days of Christmas quilt.

 Last weekend hubby and I went to Bairnsdale for a friend's 50th birthday. On the way I manged to visit a couple of quilt shops. At Lily Lane Patchwork in Rosedale I spied some potential backing fabric - 'Acorn' by Hoffmann Fabrics, that I think would look good for this quilt.

 I also visited Candleberry Country in Yarragon where I was delighted to see Natalie's (the store owner) version of the 12 Days quilt in lovely soft colours. Because I had purchased the pattern (Viv's creations) she let me take some photos. Seeing her beautiful quilt has inspired me to complete all the stitched borders as I was considering simplifying it down to something easier...

...what was I thinking?

I really like the quilting that has been done down the vertical lines where the blocks meet, simple but very effective.
