The "lol perv" quilt

For as long as I've known her, Danielle Petits Elefants has been making this quilt (or have there been several versions of the same thing?).  And yesterday, "just because" it arrived in my letterbox, all the way from Australia and now has pride of place in my kitchen.  Am I the luckiest or what?
And in case anyone wonders why Danielle and I call this the "lol perv" quilt, here's the Flickr conversation that started it all two years ago when Danielle and I were in a bee together.


Thank you so much Danielle, I can't tell you how much I love it and how much I love to spend time admiring your swirly quilting.  And P.S. for anyone wanting to make the same thing, this quilt is from a Don't Look Now pattern.
