A quilted quilt to show you.

I finally got my act together and took a photo of this quilt that I got back from Nat (from the Quilting Bug) who machine quilted it for me.
This quilt was a BOM from Debbie Mumm. It’s called Natural Wonders.
I really enjoyed doing it and Nat did autumn leaves all over it to compliment the quilt. With a border design as well.

I am now loving having my quilts machine quilted.
I love how the pattern just flows all over the quilt….Love it. I love the feeling of having something finished and looking good too.

The part on the very right is the backing fabric and that machine design is all over the quilt except for the very light part (middle) which is the outer border. Thanks Nat! I love it.
Nat is in Victoria and has a fast turnaround for all Edge to Edge quilting and is just the loveliest lady to deal with.

The time has come for me to take my Pin Cushion off for downloading for free.

I know a lot of you downloaded it and I do hope you enjoy sewing it and don’t forget to show me :) I love seeing what you all do with my designs.
If you missed out on getting it for free you can now buy it from my Etsy shop.
Also don’t forget to download the last BOM block for Flirting With Flowers and here is the finished quilt.
I am yet to write up the pattern for sewing it all together but I will get there.

Your Flirting With Flowers quilt is just fabulous too! Love the setting but I probably won't be doing any triangles, lol - it's hard enough getting the hang of curves on my current quilt!
