New Quilt

I have just finished this quilt, I made it for a very special member of my family, I want to hand this over personally to see the reaction, they have no idea about it, it’s going to be a total surprise.!!
I found the pattern on http://www.blankquilting.com the pattern is called Belle Fleur.

The quilt is now in the hands of my Brother and his wife, they love the quilt and were very surprised to receive it. This quilt means a lot to me as my brother has terminal cancer, I hope this will bring him comfort on the days he feels really bad.

If any of you decide to have a go, I suggest you number your fabrics and also your blocks as you make them, it goes together like a jigsaw puzzle, looks daunting when you study the pattern, but once you get into it, it is not hard.

The biggest problem I had was how to quilt it without it detracting from the pattern, in the end I decided to follow the design, it worked a treat. This was made and quilted on my Janome Memory Craft 6600P, which was bought for me as a 60th birthday present from my wonderful hubby. I am now considering making it again in a different colour way.

I am entering this quilt into the Bloggers Quilt Festival.
