I was immediately drawn to this pattern that was in a Quilters Newsletter Magazine two or three years ago. It is paperpieced and done in batiks. The first quilting I did on it I took out and then redid it----much better. I have done a smaller wallhanging in this pattern and it is in an earlier post. One of my favorites. (Click to enlarge)

Last summer I found this sweet pattern in one of my quilting magazines. I was immediately drawn to it and wanted to do it in the bright fabrics.

Found the multicolored dot fabric which is perfect for the background. I did the machine buttonhole stitch around all the pieces and bordered it with narrow patches of all the fabric. The little sashing and the binding were fussycut from some fabric with row after row of different colored rickrack. I machine quilted the piece. This was a fun quilt to do. (Click to enlarge)
