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.
