Blue Daze Quilt

I have just had the pleasure of quilting this beautiful Blue Daze Quilt for Kate from One Flew Over.  The quilt is for her son, Alfie and is a result of the Around The Block quilting bee - both Kate and all the girls involved have done a fantastic job.  Kate has kindly allowed me to blog about her quilt before she has even seen it - I hope you like it Kate.

Kate chose the Waterworld quilting design, having seen it on this little quilt.  The quilting design has added great texture and movement through the quilt.  Here are some close-ups of the quilting and the fabulous blocks.

There is so much little detail in each of the blocks - they really are lots of fun.

As there were more blocks than Kate was able to use in the front, some of the blocks have been used to make a great quilt back.  As a machine quilter, I must admit I love the quilting on that expanse of white fabric on the back.

I hope Alfie gets many years of use out of his new quilt - enjoy!
