I'm really pleased with this little quilt. Its A3 size, made for my quilt group challenge which was to represent the season which I pulled out of a hat. Mine was summer, and this piece is called 'Norfolk Summer'. I was trying to get the lazy golden fields and the big skies - all from the remains of my scrap collection!
Thanks to Benta for my 'hedgehog' (which is really an Australian echidna, sorry for transplanting it!). I think that the quilt really needed that and the tiny bird embroidered at the top too.
Thanks for the idea!
School summer holidays are in full swing, and I'm going for the relaxed vibe! I hope that you are able to enjoy some relaxed crafting too.

The photos don't do the soft colours justice - I may try some more photos on a day when the light is different. However, the quillow is finished three days earlier than my self imposed deadline.
Here is the quillow in it's cushion form, using the same sort of quarter square triangle blocks that are on the quilt, but a smaller scale.
Another project complete!

I can see now that I could have made a better fabric choice for what became the central star - the 'bookbinder' fabric which I love should have been swapped for something with a smaller pattern. Never mind - its all a learning process!
Soon the quilt top will be made and I'll turn my attention to the 20" cushion front for the quillow.
Enjoying the simple repetitive sewing.
