It's here! It's here!

Look what was delivered to my doorstep, all the way from the talented, Nicolette, in the Netherlands.  This quilt represents an international collaboration of artistic expression, lovingly and masterfully made by a lovely friend (read the details here).  Can you believe my joy at winning this beauty?
Take a look at a close up of the backing fabric and the gorgeous long arm quilting.  Seeing this as her choice for the backing, tells me just how well Nicolette knows me.  My favourite colours along with polka dots.  It's perfect! 
 Every block is unique and made with such precision - not just the piecing - but even Nicolette's understanding of colour.  Each block holds some delight, like this wonky log cabin block.
 So many pretty fabrics, it could be used for a game of "I Spy" or name that designer. ;o)
Nicolette, I'm over the moon with happiness and honoured to have this gorgeous quilt made by you, from the participation of so many lovely bloggers around the globe, for my own.  Thank you so much!
