First quilt finished

I've made this quilt for my granddaughter Charlotte's 10th birthday.  She knew I was making one but didn't know what colours or what fabric, any way she was thrilled to bits with it and it's now pride of place on her bed.


The fabric is from a range by Basic Grey, which actually matches their paper range.  This is the first quilt I've actually finished, not the first I've made, but the only one to be completely done.  I've got another couple on the go, so hopefully they will be done before the end of the year, lol.

I bought the material from Craft Den and would like to thank Lynne and Bob for all their help in choosing the fabrics, helping to cut the pieces (thanks Bob), general encouragement, and of course for Bob's wonderful cheese sandwiches, he makes the best I've ever tasted, don't know what his secret is but believe me they are ace.  I'm so pleased with the final result.
