This is my summer quilt.  I just finished the top and put it on my quilt ladder.  I will take it down in the fall and put on the backing, quilt it and bind it.  My co-worker gave me this kit over a year ago for some work we did together.  She won a competition with a huge cash prize and I could not be happier with the gift she gave me in return.  The pattern is In Bloom by Crazy Old Ladies and I think that the fabrics came from a line by Terry Atkinson and Liz Lois for Red Rooster Fabrics, however, i got it as a pre-made kit and so I am not sure exactly if all the fabrics came from that line.

I am really happy with the quickness of this project.  From start to this stage it only took a few hours.  Separating the fabric, cutting the flowers out and the steam a seam 2 to applique took a little time.  My friend has a blanket stitch on her machine and I borrowed the machine to attach the applique edges.  I stayed up one night after my daughter went to bed, listened to a movie and sewed the edging.  I love it and can't wait to finish it.  It will be my first attempt at sewing this big a quilt on my own machine with my darning foot.  I am pretty excited.  It will be fun.
