Spring Quilt - The Good

White sashing added following great admiration for the quilting style of Rita (of Red Pepper Quilts).  Rita was a great help too, with her excellent binding tutorial here.
I was also inspired by a trip to Hobbycraft (I know, how did that happen!), where I chose the fabrics on a whim one day.

Fabric for the top and back
Acres of white cotton (more about THAT to follow at a later stage!)
I used half a metre of each of the following
Amy Butler Love Tumble Roses Pink
Tanya Whelan Darla Ditty Blue
Tanya Whelan Darla Picnic Rose Sky
Amy Butler Lotus Wallflower Green
And the fifth pattern I can't remember..........

For the binding:
Amy Butler Love Sunspots Wine
Hobbs Heirloom Premium Cotton 80% cotton and 20% polyester

Why no in focus, full quilt shot (see post below for it lying on the bed)....?  Because then you would see the, err, beginner quilter issues.  Which I will tell you about later.  I can see the problems, but you know what?  I. Still. Love. It.
