This is one of my quilts which I have recently finished.  It is called Whimsy and is designed by Judy Newman.  

It was a project that a friend chose for us both to make to keep us connected even though we now live in different states as she moved to Brisbane a few years ago.  

I think this is the first quilt I have made along with a friend where I have finished it first.  I am usually the one that is distracted with other projects.  However in the first lockdown of March/April last year I found it therapeutic to work on this quilt picking the fabric for each block to make them different.  For anyone who knows my quilts, this is not my usual colour palette, but I liked working with the soft and pretty florals in the centre of each block, and I enjoyed moving out of my comfort zone.

I quilted it with an allover freehand rose pattern which keeps it soft and pretty.

I had a pile of the striped triangles remaining after piecing the blocks so added a border to the quilt which wasn't in the pattern, but I think it frames the quilt nicely.
