Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry - Large Quilt



If you've been following my blog, you know from my previous post that I just finished "Florence" for Nursing Week 2014. By Florence, I mean the Florence Nightingale quilt, of course, made with the Women of Courage line by Nancy Gere for Windham Fabrics. I didn't think I was that fond of the more muted colours, but I really love this line, especially that little blue accent fabric. The backing is done in that same blue.
