A lovely bit of weather!

I was going to post another white quilt today but I have just been for a walk and I think something a bit brighter is called for:

This quilt measures about 2 metres square. All hand appliqued and hand quilted!
I started the applique in the summer of 2009, an awful summer in Victoria. I can't help look at the quilt and be reminded.
It's from an antique pattern called "Love Apple' but rather than a flower it is a tomato. Early on tomatoes were admired as a fruit before they were eaten as a 'vegetable'.
