Daffodils in the Deep!

It was my great pleasure to test a new pattern for 

my friend Kirsty @ Bonjour Quilts!

I really admire her work and ideas...

She calls her pattern "Diamonds in the Deep",


but I used a sunny Kona Daffodil yellow 

for my baby version - hence the name.


I used a visit to Port Nepean to do 

a little photo shoot!


This Ikea print was perfect for the backing....


Firstly I machine quilted in the ditch 

in a large cross hatch pattern...

The Port Nepean cemetry
and then couldn't resist adding some hand quilting!

Here it is after a wash and tumble dry...

It didn't fade, just blame the photographer!

all snuggly and being used by an August baby!

More details on this wonderful pattern 

can be found here

Thanks Helen for being my quilt holder!

Happy days!

  7. What a beautiful quilt, and it's photographed in such a lovely location! That blue sky couldn't be a more perfect contrast to the sunny colors in your quilt. And how wonderful that you live so close to the ocean. It's very generous of you to be giving away that quilt, after spending so much time quilting it - by machine and by hand! So impressive. You created a treasure, Susan.

  9. Yellow is not one of my go to colours - but it looks terrific with those neutral/black prints. The pattern looks simple at first glance - but in fact has just the right amount of complexity to make it interesting. It sort of has a top and bottom - would you have the dark bit at the bottom?

  20. Oh, I love it! What a treasure, Susan. Your photographs are so lovely....I'm writing from the beach (where I seldom get to visit) and wishing that I had a quilt with me for a photo shoot, now. What a beautiful sky and water. Today I saw a plant called Ink Berries (do you know it?) at a botonical garden. I was told that it was an Australian plant.... darling blue berries all over airy vines low to the ground. I can't grow them in my climate, unfortunately. That has nothing to do with your quilt, I know...ha!
