This is the front of Ellen Johnson's French themed quilt. You can see the fantastic backing in yesterday's post. She made this quilt for her daughter who collected the panels. But first it will be exhibited at the Mercer Museum (Doylestown, PA) as part of the Friendly Quilters' Quilt Show, January-March 1, 2009. The center panel started out as a dish towel. I like how she added red in the center, and the sashing fabric is perfect. The chat noir in the lower right corner is keeping an eye on things!
This quilt was beautifully machine quilted by Ruth Stoneseifer.
