I am waaay behind gift making this year and this quilt top should have been made and given to a gorgeous friend turning 60...back in January, oops! These beautiful French General fabrics have been sitting in my stash for a while and it was just the right colour range for my friend.
It turned into a stripey quilt because I only had a small stash of these fabrics (fat quarters), and only two larger yard pieces (the two long red stripes in the centre of the quilt. They will also make up the backing).
The French General fabric is gorgeous, even down to the stripe and dot feature along the selvedge. I made sure some of that got into the quilt too.
I now have a few days in front of me with not much happening, so you will find me attached to my sewing machine, quilting away! xo
