Newest Project Quilt Top Completed








This would have to be the fastest project I have worked on for some time. I was able to keep within my stash as I have promised myself, so I am extra pleased with the results. Sad to say that 9 fat quarters and two 1 metre lengths have not really created much of a dent in that stash!!

The resulting quilt top is 60 inches square, I plan on using the first border fabric to bind it.

Greg gave me the fabrics several years ago for my birthday, and he gave up asking when I was going to use them some time ago. They were not fabrics I would have chosen for myself, but I do love the look of them all together.

Leah keeps commenting that there is no 'brown' - she is having a go at me I know!!!

Now lets see how long it takes me to quilt it.
