Second charity quilt

Thank you to Val once again for letting me practise on three charity quilts she has put together with her Thimbleberries Block of the Month leftovers. The use of the ferny yellow fabric and a selection of creams gives a lighter feel than you would usually expect from a Thimbleberries quilt. There is a story to that yellow fabric that I'll allow Val to share.

Fabric: Thimbleberries from various Blocks of the Month over a number of years
Quilting pattern: Trailing leaves
Thread: Karnak - King Tut for Superior Threads

I've learned a few things from this quilt:
* don't be mean with the wadding and backing
* A tension gauge will be a good investment
* I want to order some 100% cotton wadding in for clients or 80/20 but no polyester
