I'm so pleased. The more I've worked on this quilt, the more I've fallen in love with it. I adore the bright, sunshine colours and I'm delighted with how it's gone together.

The pattern is from the ever-useful Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott. It's a great book - I've made a number of quilts from it, as have friends, and they always turn out beautifully. The quilt is the Log Cabin Hidden Stars pattern.

The fabric is a Moda jelly roll. Can't remember which range it's from though I'm afraid.

I've had lots of fun quilting this one. I'm really enjoying quilting at the moment. I think (know!) it's one of those things which gets much better with practice. I'm taking my time more and really trying to include the quilting as a key part of the overall design. To start with I quilted round all the stars on the quilt. I've then done a large meandering pattern all over, with butterflies at random points to match the butterflies in some of the fabric.

So all it needs now is a label and then I'm done - just need to decide on a name for it.
