This quilt was started some time ago.  Once I got to the quilting part I stalled.  Yesterday I finished it.  This is machine pieced and machine quilted, there is no fusing in the quilt.  I had trouble with the binding and was wondering why it was not going on nice.  I figured it out and had to redo a section of it.  It wasn't square! :)  oops!  I started doing this type of piecing about a year ago.  I have another finished  and is in a gallery show.  You can see it on line at:  www.bereaartscouncil.org

Click on "Quilts with a Kick" then scroll down to click for more quilts.  It's called I See London I See France.

This is awsome!!!  I love the topic most of all.  Secondly I love the colors, the way the bed Quilt pops and how the the "quilt" is traditional piecing and the little girl and background is contemporary.  Wonderful!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments.  I do enjoy being able to create a quilt using a photo that I have taken.
