Sun charms quilt


Here are pics of the first quilt that I finished on my new sewing machine- it became a gift for a good colleague. He and his wife had their 2nd baby in January, I hope that it gives them much pleasure.

The pattern is from Amy Smart- her blog Diary of a Quilter is fresh modern and simple - Thanks Amy for the pattern. The fabric is Whimsy from  Heather Mulder- it's a selection ordered from her website as the FQ shop included all the pinks and reds and i really wanted a gender neutral colours to make this quilt. Thank you Heather for lovely fabric.

Here are some pics- taken with the phone, so not the best quality. But a lovely quilt to make and easy to quilt - 1/4" either side of the main seams. Finished size was about40 x 52", with the addition of the small white borders, the white on white has small dragonflies....too cute!
