A Quilt for my daughter

 My daughter has a significant birthday at the end of this month, so I decided to mark the occasion by making her a quilt.. I love the colours.

It's a batik fabric called Shades of Peace.
I bought it from a little  shop in Portland, Victoria, Australia, last year.
I have just been waiting for an excuse to use it! 
The quilt design is 'Birds in the Air.'
I have loved making this and have sewn most days to get it finished. It's all triangles and to cut them I was working with 7/8th of an inch, not my favourite sizing, but after cutting out 490 triangles I have got the hang of measuring such a weeny part of an inch!!LOL
Hope she likes it. It is the sort of colours she likes and so I hope it will fit in with her colour scheme.
The redder colours are slightly darker than the photos show.  
Thank you for all your kind and encouraging comments it is so lovely to be part of this generous blogging world.
Happy Days
