I had a pack of FQs a few years ago for a birthday gift they were P&B Textiles Chole range i had wanted to make a quilt with these there was 22 in the pack I used a flannel backing & cotton wadding/batting

Well i decided on doing a Quilt using the pattern Summer Porch from Quilts through the Seasons by Eleanor Burns (Quilt in a Day) this was a first for me as i have never done a quilt using a pattern i did make a slight change as the twin & queen sizes was not either big enough or too big so this has finished at 82" x 95" 

I did not do the quilting on this as i wanted this to be a special one so i had my friend Janet McElroy to do it as she does do other people's quilts & she don't have a longarm just a sewing machine so she does such a marverlous job you can see her other quilts if you go to her Blog  

I still have to make a label for this as my printer has been down waiting to see if a new part will work or i need to get a new one so will do that & add that to the back so it will have all the info on it as i hope this will be a heirloom quilt so here a lot of photos some are what i took some are from Janet

They were well done! Most people think you need to have the light coming directly at a quilt. That works for quilt tops just fine, but once it's quilted, we want to see the quilting.

I love your quilt, and you really know how to take photos so they show the quilting. If the light is from straight on, you can't see anything, but from the side, the shadows will highlight the quilting. Good job on the quilt, and great photos!
