French Generale.....

 I thought I might show you the first queen size quilt I ever made.      It was made for a colleague at work who wanted it for a wedding present for his sister.     The quilt took four months to make.    The quilting was done by a fabulous lady at My Father's Heart.   It was a bit hairy sending the quilt to Bradford and waiting for it to come back!    The fabric is Moda French Generale.  It's a mix of a few collections.      The pic at bottom right is the backing.     The size is 88" x 98".      The top left is the top put together before the border was put on.   The quilt was then sent to Italy.
I have to say I am very proud of it.

Thanks for stopping by.

To have it machine quilted! It cost £100 to do that (including the wadding)!
