First Finish for April!!


My friend Jean went to NZ for her grandson's wedding and the birth of her first great grand child. A little Girl. While away it was her birthday so I decided to make a quilt for her. I had a whole month so it would be easy. LOL.

 In one of my boxes I have heaps of cobblestone blocks I collected in a swap last year. So sorted some lovely ones I thought would suit. Laid them out on the spare bed and left them there.

A week before Jean was due to come home I finally put the blocks together. Over the last few days I finally quilted it. Just cross hatched as it is quick

Jean come home last weekend . I am going to visit her over Easter and will give her the quilt.

I am very happy with it. What do you think.
