Top completed

Finished my black, white and teal green quilt top at exactly 11.59pm last night! I should of been in bed catching zzzzzzz but Emma convinced me to stay up and sew, there's a 1.5 hour time difference (between WA and SA) and she informs me that she stayed up sewing till 3.15am! This quilt came togther really quick, I cut all the fabric's out last weekend and just sewed them into blocks when I could, usually after work between 7.30 and 9pm. I joined all the rows last night, I was going to sew in a pattern but random tones looked better. 9 rows of 9 so 81 blocks in total, quilt measures 54" square (or 138cm), perfect lap size. Cold, wet and windy here with very little sun so the pics are not great. I had to double peg and lay on the ground to get a pic! I never managed to track down the green dots, trying to find a matching homespun green to use for the binding, nothing even remotley similar colourwide. Will sandwich and start quilting on Monday night.

The things we do for a great picture (I for one just purchased a new Canon G10 yesterday and need to blog about it as soon as my little people goes home but am continuing with my sewing nonetheless and hopefully teaching them to quilt as well).

Great looking quilt by the way.

Well done! I really like the effect in the photos of lying on the ground below it! I recognise an awful lot of the bmw prints, too ;)

I love this! It's so striking and a nice break from the black, white, and red.
