Linen and roses quilt

Linen is starting to be the fabric of choice for backgrounds instead of plain cotton.  So when I found this gorgeous off white linen and a bundle of fat quarters in my stash from Quilt Gate that I had purchased quite a few years ago, they seemed a perfect fit.
The pattern is called ‘Vintage’ from Camille Roskelley’s book Simply Retro.
This book is great.  I’ve made several other quilts from this book.  Modern, yet with a vintage vibe and very well written.  She’s a clever lady.
So back to the quilt.  I finished it in time to give to my sister-in-law Jacqueline as a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for allowing us to stay with her in London while we did our OE.  She was a very generous and wonderful hostess and took us everywhere!
And of course it was quilted once again by Susan Trendall.
