Quilting dancing nine patch...and sharing a friends quilt making.

How amazing is my quilting friend Desa's quilt looking!
Desa is making the "Blessing" quilt by Robyn Falloon.
Beautiful invisible applique.
Here Desa was auditioning fabric ideas for the be honest, at first I didn't think the floral fabric for the sashing suited....but just look here.
 I think her choice of the floral fabric pulls all the colours in the quilt together beautifully. The red fabric for corner stones.
Stunning vibrant colours to suit her colour scheme....making it very much her own.
Desa has decided to make it bigger, adding another row in length and width, so that it goes over the sides of the bed
Just beautiful Desa...♥
I managed to get some quilting done on my Dancing Nine Patch...just simple loops and hearts. A heart in every nine patch and meandering loops all over.
However, I think I will take a courageous scary step and quilt feathers around  the borders...I need to get out of my comfort zone....and just do it!
Have a great weekend....♥
