Finishing those UFOs

Way way back in August 2010 I started doing some English Paper Piecing with a French General Jelly Roll while on holiday in Cornwall, I have picked this up and put it down on various holidays since but finally it is reaching completion!!!

It really has been a labour of love with everything being hand sewn that I felt I had to hand quilt it too, but it really is starting to come together.  The inbetween triangles are Moda crossweave which the lovely Katy - Imagingermonkey very kindly gave me as it is now out of production (thank you sweetie), and the background fabric is of course a Kona  Cotton Solid - Seafoam which is sooo pretty and of course available from Simply Solids :-)  The backing fabric is from the Fa la la la range by French General.

I'm feeling really pleased with it, it is amazing what you can do with a jelly roll.  I will post some more detailed pictures and some more of the finished projects I've done over the past few months.

The first few blocks way back when...
