Celine

Just to prove I do actually finish the projects I start :) I thought I would post some of my finished quilts here. This is 'Celine' I bought it as a kit at a Dutch quilt show from Quilt it, something I never normally do, but I loved the combination of cross-stitch, lace and quilting and the fabrics! I changed the border from the original piano key style to this plain one so I could do some more hand quilting. Machine pieced, hand quilted, a lot of the fabrics are by French General.

  8. I can see why you were tempted by 'Celine' - it's just gorgeous and it looks perfect on your couch. You rarely see cross-stitch being incorporated into a quilt, thanks for sharing this finish.

  9. It is so beautiful. I made my Celine ( I call it Potpourri quilt) 2 years ago with darker reds and still enjoying it so much. Love making the quilt in 6 weeks, all by hand !!
