Fabric Picture Quilt

I saw this design in an old quilting magazine and thought it was wonderful to show off the material that is too nice to cut up into small pieces. Most of the fabric in this quilt was from my ‘stash’, with the exception of the calico backing and some of the grey sashing. This quilt is for a friend to be installed when she moves into her next accommodation (hopefully soon!). She has seen the top and said she loves it. I quilted the squares in the ditch, then most of the remainder as free motion trying to enhance the material designs. This took quite a while and was quite challenging, and produced a lot of ends to tie off.
