Look what's blooming!

Whew - I haven't finished a "garage door" sized quilt top for a long time.  In other words, one so big I had to take it outside to photograph because it's too big to fit on my design wall!

Thelma, Nicole and I all fell in love with this quilt last year when we attended the Buggy Barn's outdoor quilt show.  We've been planning to make this for over a year, and finally put the pedal to the metal and finished this gorgeous quilt.  It was a fun project to work on with friends, and made it even more special that we swapped fabric for it, too.  I have bits of both my friends in my quilt, and that just makes me smile.

The pattern is Autumn in my Garden and is featured in the Buggy Barn book, A Little Bit Crazy.  The 'Barn has also just come out with this as an individual pattern, which you can order from their website.  They also have a kit available, in case you don't have two great friends to swap fabric with!
