Finished in a day...Not!

I finished this quilt a couple of weeks ago....only a few years after starting it!

Ironically I made this quilt because I wanted to see if I could make a quilt in a day. I made the top in a day! I used the free Lark Quilt pattern by Amy Butler, I changed it slightly so I could use a layer cake and not have any wastage.

I also wanted to use what was in my stash, in hindsight I should have spent a few dollars to get a navy solid rather than using the print but I'm not changing that now.

It stayed in my container of finished tops for a long until I dug it out and got it professionally quilted by Fiona aka the quilting fairy. She did such a wonderful job, I totally love the feathers and the block pattern she quilted on the navy.

I am going to try to not let quilts take so long to finish from now on....ok even I know that is probably not really going to work out!

Bye for now, Jess
