Guernsey quilt

I was contacted a few months ago about long arm quilting a quilt for a group in Guernsey, our neighbouring island. I met Leila when she came to Jersey with some friends for a workshop with Philippa Naylor a few years ago. It's funny how things come around as Philippa is back in Jersey in March teaching again.
The Guernsey group were lucky that a geocaching friend, Terry agreed to bring the quilt to Jersey in December and I had a visit planned to Guernsey so they have no postage to pay. It was delivered in person on Sunday.

I love the Kaffe Fasset millefiori backing they chose as it brings out all of the colours from the top and the busy print disguises the seam on the back.
