"Sassafras" with a Urban Twist

After many months it's finally finished ready to post to my Dad. This is my favorite quilt I have made yet. I love every collection "Basic Grey" bring out. This fabric range is Urban Couture. The pattern "Sassafras from Thimble Blossoms" only desired use of one jelly roll and a few fat quarters for the applique and I added a brown border it frame the piece.

I wanted to keep this quilt for my self. But I showed my Dad when he was down for the wedding and hinted that his girl friend would love it and also he really liked it too. Sooo... I decided that this was going to be their 2009 Christmas Present ( yeah it's a bit late). As I say "Rome was not Built it a Day & Good things come to those who wait" lol.

I quilted the quilt using my new frame and a design I learnt from Sarah when she was up on holidays. (thanks Sarah). It was quite easy once I got into the motion. It seemed to just flow.

So here is maybe my last completed project for January... I might have time to finish after but I'm not promising anything. I have the next two days off from work but my husband (Simon) and I are going to Rockhampton on a Shopping Day tomorrow and Tuesday is my birthday... so I might go and hassle Gail for a sewing day.

Hope you all had a great Kreative Weekend... Take Care
