Iris & Delilah Quilt

It's ages since I posted about my Granny's Quilt made from this fabulous stack of Tanya Whelan fabrics.

It was another "intense quilting" experience but it got made in time.  I forgot to take photos of the finished quilt to had to wait until I went home a few weeks ago.

The design is simple rectangles to showcase the gorgeous fabric and is based on Cluck Cluck Sew's Roadtrip Quilt

More Delilah & green solid on back
The quilting is lots and lots and lots and lots of straight lines.  Thank goodness for my walking foot - there are no puckers and it feels gorgeous.

Binding is a print from the Delilah line and the finished quilt measures 66"x80"

Iris (my Granny's name) & Delilah (the fabric) Quilt

My Granny cried when I gave it to her so it was worth all the 2 am finishes and it remains my favourite quilt to date.
