Cobblestones Quilt Completed

This quilt was started quite a long time ago at my group's 2010 retreat weekend in Lancefield. The fabric is French General and I got a big pack of fat quarters and matching backing fabric from the US when our dollar hit $US1.00 the first time ... about three quilts' worth for $100.

I had originally intended to quilt it myself on my domestic machine but had trouble with getting it flat while basting, then when that was overcome I didn't like the straight lines or in the ditch which were my two options ... so there it sat. But in my determination to finish up UFOs this year and because the fabrics are so nice, I pulled it out and off it it went to Lucy at Lasting Creations for some edge to edge quilting. I'm really pleased with the result.
