A Finished Quilt

My Favourite Things 

I was lucky enough to join this group of ladies in November last year
and thus began my journey with this quilt.

Armed with one book, some gorgeous fabrics and the support from the 
Stitch-a-long girls, especially Chookyblue. I have been able to turn all this

into this

Quilt Stats
"My Favourite Things" by Anni Downs
from the book
"Some Kind of Wonderful"
Finished Size 
62" x 69"

It is even up on the wall :)

Only one thing wrong with this picture. Do you see it?
The wine rack is empty!
Better get around to fixing that! lol

If you would like to see more versions of this quilt come to life,
 pop on over the the Stitch-a-long blog and take a look.

Enjoy your Monday.
