Lollies for Lily

I am sure that my Miss 6 lays claim to almost every finished quilt 
in this house and this one is no exception.

"Lollies Quit"

My favourite Bonnie and Camille fabrics are "Scrappy Bonnie and Camille"
so with this quilt I dived deep into my scrap containers and I couldn't be happier with the final result.

Bendigo is known for its Tulip display (I LOVE Tulips) and they are just starting to open so I decided to take this quilt to the Tulips for its photo shoot!

If you are in the Bendigo area in the next two weeks I can highly recommend a visit.
The Tulips usually last 2-3 weeks but its all dependant on the weather.

A few fun shots from our morning out.

If you have been following my quilting journey for a while you will know that I do love a double sided Quilt, well this one is no exception :)


I have been very lucky to participate in a Quilt Block Bee where the theme was 'Bonnie and Camille' so I have quite a collection of various sized blocks so for the back of this one I dove deep into my B and C Block box and pulled out some blocks and made my back.  

I love that this quilt has some special blocks made for me by some special friends.
