Au Point, Mon Ami!

  

This lap quilt or large cot quilt is one of a set of three cot or lap quilts I made from one jelly roll of 'Mon Ami' by Basic Grey for Moda, using a pattern called To the Point by Amy Gibson.


The quilts are all made with half square triangles that are cut from joined strips of the jelly roll and I quilted this one with randomly spaced wavy lines.

It is one of my goals for the first quarter of the 2017 Finish Along.

"Kia ora" to all my visitors from Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday linky party!

I wanted to try three of the layouts so worked out how to create three different-sized quilts. I named them with French themed names in tribute to the fabric name and the pattern name:
