Summer Porch Quilt

I had a pack of FQs a few years ago for a birthday gift they were P&B Textiles Chole range i had wanted to make a quilt with these there was 22 in the pack I used a flannel backing & cotton wadding/batting

Well i decided on doing a Quilt using the pattern Summer Porch from Quilts through the Seasons by Eleanor Burns (Quilt in a Day) this was a first for me as i have never done a quilt using a pattern i did make a slight change as the twin & queen sizes was not either big enough or too big so this has finished at 82" x 95" 

I did not do the quilting on this as i wanted this to be a special one so i had my friend Janet McElroy to do it as she does do other people's quilts & she don't have a longarm just a sewing machine so she does such a marverlous job you can see her other quilts if you go to her Blog  

I still have to make a label for this as my printer has been down waiting to see if a new part will work or i need to get a new one so will do that & add that to the back so it will have all the info on it as i hope this will be a heirloom quilt so here a lot of photos some are what i took some are from Janet
