My first Quilt!

Last week I completed my first "Raw Edge" or "Rag" Quilt!
Whatever it's called I love it, I love that it was sew easy (groan!) and I also love the fabric.
It's a "French General - La Belle Fleur" Layer cake by Moda which contains 40 10" x 10" squares. This I bought on Ebay.

The Beautiful Batting I purchased from a Wonderful Quilting shop quite local to us called "The Bramble Patch" in Weedon, Northants. (talk about kid in a sweet shop!)
The backing is from a brushed cotton single sheet from Dunelm Mill.

My friend Jane completed one a year or so back and I knew then I needed to have a try. In the meantime I've been pinning ideas onto my Fabric & Sewing board on Pinterest.
If you take a peek you can see the sites where my inspirations came from (mostly from Bloom & Blossom) Mine is different in that I haven't bound the edges and my quilting shape was slightly different. I feel confident now to have a go with different designs next time!

Thanks for stopping by :)
