Splendid Hues

Last night I finally got all the way round the quilt I have been working on since Christmas, it went together really well, grew extra quick, and then I got to the mitred corners. Well I dont think I will go into that, but let me just say that they are not as easy as I thought. Hand sewing the binding down took ages, mainly because the back itself is sewn to the prairie points and it is fiddly. Anyway here it is.

I forgot to add that this is a kit available thru Craft Quarters The fabric range is from Willmington prints and the pattern is a free one that comes with the fabric, this quilt is the lap size finished about 73" by 73". There is also a queen size on the pattern sheet.
