Some Kind of Wonderful!

Annie Downs  design's the most yummiest quilts and here is one I recently quilted......."Some Kind of Wonderful".........with a slightly different look to Annie's original.
For the best viewing, click on the photo's.
 A group effort for Aurely's 50th birthday. Aurely loves pink, & pastel's. Six friends each made a block they fancied. For a nice uniformed looked & using fabric we knew Aurely would like, we used Bunny Hill's range ~ "Puttin on the Ritz", with a touch of a green fabric. Most blocks were chosen from Annie's book, some were from other sources of inspiration. As one of Aurely's friends, rather than make a block I offered to do the quilting.
