A recent finish for my great niece's 10th birthday.  I've had the fabric for quite a few years thinking it would make a pretty girls quilt and when my niece asked me to make her a quilt I knew what I wanted to use.  The pattern is called Zinnia Garden from American Patchwork & Quilting 2017 calendar.  My niece loved it and apparently her bedroom is being painted to go with it!

Thanks for all the nice comments!  I learn more and more about my longarm and IQ every time I use it and am inspired by all the other great photos I see.  I'm slowly working to gain confidence to do more manual work on my quilts as well.  I have a couple smaller pieces that are waiting for me that I'll jump in and start one of these days:-)

Really lovely quilt. Your quilting is gorgeous. Really sets off the different elements. Thanks for sharing.

Yes...piecing took longer than I thought it would when I first decided on this pattern.  I had to piece the center of all the flowers first and then lay out where they would be placed so I could determine the color around each block.  Thankfully the result was worth the effort!
