Queen's Garden - July OMG is a finish!

I've been having fun taking pictures of diffeent quilts with this hydrangea bush the last week - it's so lovely!  And the perfect match to this quilt for sure!
This fabric is Sausalito Cottage by LakeHouse and it features Hydrangeas, a touch of Paris and lots of pretty purple and green.  I also used some Fairy Frosts and tone on tone fabric that coordinated.  I totally love it!  
Can you see the shimmer of the white fairy frost?  It's so pretty!  I love the way the center blocks combine.  I decided to quilt this in an allover swirl hook design using a medium tone purple Aurifil thread.  
I used the green hydrangea print for the binding and it was just perfect!  The backing is an off white with little purple sprigs by Figo fabric.  It's always so hard to pick just the right backing!

I am working on the pattern for this, but am not ready to publish it quite yet - but I'll make sure to let you know when it's available. I'm thinking of expanding it to make a bed size quilt, so that will take a bit more design work.  But at least I've made a good start on it. 

I've really enjoyed participating in the One Monthly Goal this year, it's sure helped me get my UFO projects completed.  This is my seventh finish for the year!

Congratulations on your finished quilt, Pamela! It's beautiful, and how nice of your hydrangeas to cooperate by being in full, luxurious bloom for the photo shoot! :-)
