back to craft...

This is the top of a quilt for our couch.
I purchased the fabric from the amitie sale before I went away
& while sitting on the beach in vanuatu, I drew up the pattern & made all calculations.
Today I cut & pieced the top together, I was so excited & couldn't wait any longer.
I think I'll back it with some japanese linen.
Sorry for the average pic, there's not alot of sun or warmth in Melbourne today.

The colours look great together. Can't wait for the finished quilt. Are you quilting it by hand or machine
