A quilt in situ

I made this quilt for my sister's friend, Carla.  It has been shipped, has arrived safely and is now installed in Carla's new Paris apartment.  Last night she sent me a photo and I wanted to keep it here for myself really.  There's something very special for me to see a quilt I've made in situ and in use.  Melody Miller's Ruby Star Rising and Kona coral are the main fabrics and it came out at a whopping 100" X 100" - QAYG in sixteen squares of 25" X 25".

  16. mammafairy's comment about it being a clutter free flat made me laugh. She hasn't moved her stuff in yet and you'll be pleased to hear that she is probably the least clutter-free person I know!

  23. C'est magnifique! so perfect so sophisticated so Parisien!

    I think this comes a very close second in quilt love to your penguin books, which will ever be my favourite quilt ever made. like ever.

    Size really does matter in this quilt! If it were smaller the graphic would just be too much. It is the perfect size. Yay you. what's the address?
