"Ginger Kisses!!!"

I am proudly presenting my latest finish today...


as part of the Blogger's Quilt Festival!


"Ginger Kisses" has been fifteen months

 in the making.

Yes, they are my feet!
with a variety of techniques used- 



foundation piecing, regular piecing and applique!

The obligatory 'rolled-up' shot with spotted binding!

It has so many of my favourite fabrics in it....

A sneaky look at the back...

including "Flea Market Fancy" and 

Holly Holderman's Paris Tea Party!


There's fabric from Provence, fabric from friends, 

and fabric from previous quilts....



My very own memory quilt!


The quilting is very subtle, 


which was the effect I was after....


It's not a large quilt at about 54" X 60"...

but perfect lap, and snuggling, size!


My son Ben helped me with the photos...

what a shame Blogger is not playing nicely again...


I had plenty more shots to share!

This is my entry into the 

Favourite Scrap Quilt section 

of the Blogger's Quilt Festival!

Happy days!
