Put on your dancing shoes and dance with me.... tis finished!!!

At last I have this quilt finished.
I started it April 2013 and then stopped to make a quilt for my grand daughter; then I started it again and by October it was finished.
But I left layering it and quilting while I made a quilt for my step daughter's wedding present.
 

So now is the only time I have had.. I have had it professionally quilted and isn't it beautifully done.

The design is 'Twin Stars'  by Pam and Nicky Lintott ( a mother and daughter team) and can be found in their book 'Jelly Roll Quilts.'  The fabric I used is 'French General' design by Moda.
I am very pleased with the finish and I think this one is going to be for us!
I have a new quilt on the go, this time for my eldest GS and then one is planned for my DD who has a big birthday coming up in September.. I must say I do love quilting it is so satisfying and through it I have met some lovely friends.

It is truly beautiful...may I ask, when you use it on your bed, do you put it on top of a duvet and actually use it for warmth?
