A Big Finish

Nearly two years after it was started my Rouenneries quilt is finally finished.


 Thankfully I love these fabrics as much now as I did then.


 In fact, only last night I was sifting through my box of leftover bits and planning another quilt in these fabrics.


The new quilt will also have bits of Rural Jardin and Pom Pom di Paris ... a truly scrappy French General quilt.


 Like me Oliver was very pleased with the warm sunny weather this morning ... he always like to 'cat scan' my quilts!


 Once again, it is Eisteddfod time so I will be very busy this week with lots of my primary school students performing vocal solos and duets and singing in our school choirs. They have all worked very hard to prepare their items ... I'm really looking forward to the next four days.
