Resistance is futile!

Last year I missed the chance to take part in this wonderful online show of quilts. This year, despite my time limitations I decided that any resistance is truly futile and i must take part even if there are only 9 hours to go before submissions are closed! Talk about lastminute dot com!!!!
The link is at Amy's Creative Side a blog which is amongst my favorite blogs to follow.
There are almost 600 quilters who have linked up and I have hopped on and off many blogs this evening amazed at people's creativity and skills...some people are very very gifted
Anyway, if you have time make yourself a nice hot drink (or get a glass of wine ;-) why not?!) and go to the blog to get very inspired indeed.

In the meantime, as I never finished the binding on the big quilt I had intended to show here,  I will have to tell the story of the little quilt I adore, or rather the little girl I adore who is the owner of this quilt!!!!

This is my Far Far Away quilt made for my daughter Isabella who is now 6 months old. I loved every minute of making this quilt. The fabrics make my heart sing and the colours are divine. The sleeping beauty in purple and the Owl & the Pussycat poem are my all time favourites. All my friends or family who have seen this quilt have loved it.

It is made from a Moda Bakeshop pattern called "Boxed in" by KarrieLyne from Freckled Whimsy (

Here are a couple of other photos of some of the blocks and the back:

Love it!!!! I cannot wait for Isabella to make it hers (even if that includes baby vomit!!!).

Thank you Amy for giving me the chance to revisit this quilt and to show it and share it with other quilters.
