|Pinwheels quilt in progress|
But I wanted a Terrain quilt too!! I bought 2 layer cakes and then life got in the way......come 2012 and I was thinking I would make a quilt using half square triangles. So I got to work and made a whole heap of HST.....only to find that it didn't do it for me :(
So I played around a bit and came up with this design, with the fabrics grouped (loosely) in colour ways and surrounded with a corresponding solid ( thanks to Sandy at Wrapped in Fabric for putting together a great Terrain/solid bundle).
The quilt is King size, my biggest yet! By the time I had finished piecing the top and back, I was really beyond quilting it. Queue my new friend Jenny - who saved the day and quilted this quilt for me in a giant stipple.
Finished off with scrappy binding, I can now say I really love this quilt!

I still have some of the layer cake fabric left over.....and I have plans to do something with that in the next few weeks...maybe some pillows to match!
Today I am linking up with the lovely Alyce from Blossom Heart quilts as part of the Kate Spain blog hop!
