New year, new quilt
Actually it was finished right at the end of 2011. This very simple quilt is called 'City Lights' and is supposed to look like a city building at dusk with the lights going on. I made it for a friend for her 40th – she is absolutely impossible to buy for (has everything!) and I only started it about three weeks before her birthday 'cause I couldn't think of anything else.
I also had to learn how to quilt pretty quickly! The back of it's not brilliant since it was my first attempt, but I still think it looks pretty effective!
It's from this book, which I really like for its plain fabric patterns. I changed the colourway in mine to suit Meegan's house. http://www.amazon.com/City-Quilts-Dramatic-Projects-Inspired/dp/157120847X/ref=sr_1_26?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1325480868&sr=1-26
