Summer swap quilt.

Thankfully, my daughter doesn't think this one is a stegosaurus!
Here is a larger view of the Summer four season's swap quilt so far. It is ready to baste, quilt and send.
I know there are a few photos of it today, but I liked the different way it looked in my favourite type of light- a rare change from th erain we have been having, but SO cold!

Enjoyed the stain glass effect looking through to the back. But I can see a few seams that need repressing!

And then I loved the summer colours against my River red gum tree....that we built the house around. I will still work on the free pieced one but DD sya this is much better, hope my [partner thinks so.
This swap has been great fun, I have signed on for Linda's bag swap as well. Always fun to make something for someone and try new things-even if it stresses me out.

I may not be around the computer too much in the next few days. I'll catch you up soon.
Have a great day.

G,Day Tracey, The quilt photo is unique. Is that the You Yangs in the distance or up Stawell way. Probably both completely wrong. Just loved the whole effect of hand made in a hand worked land. Margaret
