Bloggers quilt festival May ’13 Throw quilt category

This is my Fairytale Forest quilt and I Love it so I’m entering it into the Bloggers quilt festival.
If you’ve came over from Amy’s place a big hello and feel free to have a look around and stay for a while
A few of you will have seen this quilt before, but I assure you with prints this fun and bright there is always more to look at 😀 

It was my first attempt at diamonds and I fussy cut every single one of them from my favourite fabrics that my mum had bought for me as an early Christmas gift in 2011.
I sashed between each diamond with a lovely linen polkadot.
And decided I wanted funky corners too, so thats exactly what I did! 

As I type this post the Fairytale Forest quilt is looking at me from across the room on my armless arm chair (but thats another story!) 
Waiting for me to collect a load more bright and busy prints to make it a friend 🙂 
I hope you’re enjoying the festival as much as I am, I’ve got Bella on my knee and a cup of tea on the go and I’m intending on not moving from the sofa, unless refills are needed, until it’s time for the school run.
