Ta da ... I am finished!
Made with French General fabrics (more then one line) and using the Moonlight pattern by Gerri Robinson, from her book A Cut Above. Quilted by Vicki Jenkin. (78" x 78")
This is such a fun pattern, made with squares and stripes it was very easy to cut out and make. All the time I was cutting through I was worried that with the beautiful patterned fabrics I wouldn't get a good contrast. However I am delighted with the end result. I love two coloured quilts and red with cream is a great combination.
My favorite part of this quilt is the pieced border! My friends know that I normally use a 2 + 6 " combination border...everytime! I cannot think of another quilt where I actually pieced a border, so I am very pleased with myself. Although it felt odd to not be putting the big stars into the centre of the quilt! To ensure I didn't change the pattern I made the stars first!
The other reason to celebrate this quilt finish is the fact that it used lots of lovely gifts - my friend Ann gave me the book, Sharryn gave me a layer cake of French General and my mother gave me some FG yardage.
Happy quilting Sue.
