Now here's my first "finish" for June!! It's my new JoyPatch quilt pattern and I've called it "Dragonflight" - what do you think??? DD2 and DH just love it (hmmm, Sophie too by the looks of it!!), and I really love the colours too - Allspice Tapestry by Moda (very similar to the newer Patisserie range). I have a feeling it's the dragonflies that DD2 loves, she just LOVES dragonflies :o). Maybe someday this one will find it's way onto her bed ;o). As you can see I had lots of help from dear Sophie .....at least I thought she was going to help me ... seems she was just waiting til my back was turned.............see her little tail poking out on the left there???? Sneaky little thing thought she was being clever!!! Oh no Sophe, I never would have spotted you under there LOLOL!!!!........ she doesn't look too happy that I found her either LOL.It's a nice big queen size quilt and I used a jelly roll, a pack of charm squares and some extra yardage for the borders, sashings, backings and bindings. Of course, you don't have to have a jelly roll, you can use up some of your scraps on a quilt like this ... even the backing can be made up of different fabrics because it's also QUILT-AS-YOU-GO and REVERSIBLE!!
If you'd like to win a copy of my "Dragonflight" pattern just leave a comment on my blog and I'll enter all the comments I receive between now and next Saturday night ... and I'll pick a winner at 8pm 20th June Brisbane time - so for you Northern hemisphere people, make sure you comment well before that cos we're ahead of you down here in Australia!! That means if you comment on any more of my posts in the next week it will give you extra entries (please only comment once on each post though)!! I'll give away 3 "Dragonflight" patterns, and I'll probably tuck some other surprises in with them ... so I'll be drawing out 3 names using the very technical and modern 'papers in the bucket' method :o)!!
GOOD LUCK :o) !!!!!!!!!
