Julie's quilt

A few years ago my daughter went to America to be an au paire for a family. During that time she started a patchwork quilt and set about basing it on Jan Mullen's Making Roman Stripez  like mine. This is found in her book Cut loose quilts.

Towards the end of last year she brought it home and asked me to finish it for her. I put a navy narrow border on and then made more blocks for the outer border. I then quilted it and bound it. She was thrilled when I turned up with it finished for Christmas. What are Mum's for?

The individual fabrics she had chosen were very nice and worked well together. It is just the right weight for this time of year where she lives so is sleeping with it every night. I think it will be well loved and used.

Bye for now,
