'Nicey Jane' Birthday Quilt

On 3rd April 2015, I photographed this flimsy:

I had acquired some 'Nicey Jane' squares by Heather Bailey, an old line which has long since been discontinued.

I sewed the squares together, with no purpose in mind.  Then folded it away, out of sight, out of mind!

But I'm happy to say, exactly 1 year later (spookey eh?) I finished the binding and it now looks like this:

A friend very kindly quilted this for me on her domestic frame, which enabled me to get it bound, finished and posted to my 'pink loving' niece for her 18th birthday!

I love how pretty these fabrics are.  And did you know that 'Nicey Jane' has been reprinted and is currently available in The Fat Quarter Shop!

I guess if you hold on to something long enough it all comes around again!

Happy hoarding!
