I finished the quilt in an afternoon. I've used it to show off my favourite colour scheme (favourite at that moment in time - it changes regularly), but if you were to size it up, it would be a great pattern for showing off larger scale prints too.
I'm pretty pleased with the back of the quilt too. Most of it is a fat quarter which my Mother-in-Law brought back from New York for me. It seemed a shame to cut it up, but wasn't quite big enough, so just a single stripe of Pearl Bracelets.
It took me a while to think about how to quilt it, but a certain small person has recently had some sleepless nights (related to teeth...) so I had lots of time to think about it. I decided to fmq a star-ish design in each of the navy diamonds.
You can see it better from the back. I made a right mess of one corner where the fabric moved and puckered a bit.
Luckily I've hidden most of it with the binding, which is Color Me Happy.
The finished quilt is about 18" x 18" and was from Issue 3 of Quilt Now magazine and designed by Sonia at Fabric and Flowers.
This will now hang next to my bed, where I have a narrow strip of wall in a corner next to the curtain, perfect for some mini quilts! And this is a sixth tick off my Finish Along List which you can find here.
