This is my entry in the fall version of the Blogger Quilt Festival…….
We spent a wonderful July morning at the Eiffel tower, taking loads of photos from the top. Afterwards, we sat on the grass and enjoyed looking up at the tower
Once home my husband put these photos onto his computer as a screen saver. I devised the idea for this quilt as I watched the photos scroll past.
The Eiffel Tower and scenery photos are printed, but the lower part of the quilt is made using machine “Air Applique”.
The girl is daughter, Jenny, and I am particularly happy with how her hair turned out!!! Although, the first words out of her mouth were “you made me look fat!!!”.
