Simply-a-Bloom French General quilt

I just finished the binding on my Simply-a-Bloom quilt that I made with a Moda French General  Esprit de Noel layer cake.   The pattern I used was a free pattern from the Moda Bakeshop named Simply-a-Bloom.  This was an extremely easy quilt top to piece.  I made it one row bigger than the pattern using a little extra French General fabric I had.  My quilt is 6 blocks wide by 7 blocks long as opposed to the pattern that had 5  x 7 blocks.   This made for a nice size quilt of 71 x 81  which is roughly a full bed size.

I chose a floral backing that is also French General.

I had longarm quilter Michele Graves of Pappy’s Quilting in Maryville to quilt it.  She did a wonderful job and is reasonably priced.  I liked her work so much that I left another quilt with her.    I am going to write a blog reviewing local longarm quilters soon.
