FQS Oh, Fransson Friday

I almost forgot that it was time for

FQS! Oh, Fransson!! Friday!!!

What did I make this month?

Since this is a month of love, I decided what better to try my hand at than the beautiful quilt from The Practical Guide to Patchwork


I have loved this pattern ever since I saw it in the book. But was intimidated by the amount of cutting that it would require.

I realized that doing OFF is really helping me tackle things that normally I wouldn't... 

This quilt was one of those things!

And now that I have made a small one I really want to make a larger one, maybe for my bed (a bit too ambitious!)

So here's my Valentine...

Isn't it adorable?

Here's a detail of the simple straight line quilting...

The stunning back... A find of my recent Baroda trip...

Looks gorgeous, doesn't it?

I love it!!!

I think this one isn't going anywhere... This one is for keeps... I dont know what I'll do with it, maybe when Chaitanya (my brother) has a baby I'll give it to him... But till then, its not budging from my home!

Do you like it?
Do you want to join the FQS! Oh, Fransson!! Friday!!!
