La belle étoile

    Prev Next

    I have finally finished my queen-sized bed quilt!
    I started this project in April 2011, and I finished it in November 2011.
    I started quilting in 2005, when I was expecting my daughter. I never stopped since, gradually trying more challenging projects. And this quilt is the most challenging of all so far! I am proud to say that I made it 100% myself, with my standart sewing machine.
    And as 'finished is better than perfect', I am quite happy, even if I see a lot of flaws in this quilt, but I will not tell my husband who actually thinks I am a quilting rock star!
    Now we can sleep 'à la belle étoile' all year long!

      I had to come and have a look when you said you made one. It's lovely...maybe I don't need to be so particular about keeping rows the same colours I like the mix here.
