FO - Jill's Quilt (Mother-in-Law)

Finally finished this quilt for the best mother in law in the world.  My friend is also making this for her sister in law (also called Jill), so this pattern is now officially known as "Jill's Quilt" :)

It is a pattern from Allison Quilt Designs (allisonquiltdesigns.com) which we got online from an Australian fabric shop in Queensland (I can't remember which but will try and find the casing with the sticker on).  The pattern was all of $6 or so (I think they also sell this as a kit) and then we got all the fabric online from fabricshack or similar.  The quilt is a mix of Kaffe Fassett chevron strip with pink, purple and blue prints (again Kafffe) and is visually stunning.  The matching of the stripes and the mix of the bold and busy fabrics makes this great to look at.  The black border set off the fabrics nicely, looking crisp against all that noise; and also picked out some of the black bits in the fabrics too.  I did backing and binding in black also and quilted in black thread following the blocks - so there are outlines of diamonds on the back.

Mother in law was very pleased and so am I :)
