Peace on Earth!

This quilt was supposed to be on my couch for Christmas...the fabric is Peace on Earth by Three Sisters for Moda ..... but hey.... Peace on Earth is not just for Christmas right, we want peace all year round don't we?
This fabric actually has very few seasonal designs in it so it really will be an all year round quilt, there are lots of raspberries, lots and lots of raspberries, and Nasturtiums, that's not Christmassy is it?

Well, you know I can't post about a finished quilt until it's exactly that, finished that is, that includes the binding and for some unusual reason I kept procrastinating about finishing the quilting and then the binding but now it's done!

The pattern is from Jelly Roll Inspirations by Pam and Nicky Lintott, it's the Peace Medallion. I changed up the borders a bit using a more colour co-ordinted print from the line and added another outer border to make it a bit bigger.

Size is 62" x 84", Sew Simple Poly Batting and Metro thread top and bottom.






















Oh, and there are cushions...of course there are cushions...lol...it's been a while since I made cushions for this room so they are due. I used up most of the left overs and scraps, quilted fronts and backs, all the same but different.






I think it's a perfect match for my couch and room!

  3. Kay, so lovely and perfect match for your maroon couch. Maroon is one of my favourite words to tease my husband with. He's English born and of course pronounces it with the maroooooooon sound. Being on Aussie I use the short clipped marone (oh) sound. It drives him crazy!
    Cheers, Judy
