Top done!

I am very excited to say that I finished sewing my quilt top today!


This is all 30 of the wonky squares.  I soldiered on until they were all sewed into rows....then sewed all the rows together so the quilt top is completely done!


Lets just say we had dinner a little later than usual tonight!  Once I had started sewing I didn't want to stop until I was done.  It has now been ironed and neatly folded, awaiting a visit to the fabric shop tomorrow to see that the backing fabric I am planning to get actually looks ok alongside the top fabrics. 

I have no idea what colour of binding to use, I think I'll wait until I've quilted the quilt and then see what will work as binding. 

I am really surprised with how quickly I'm getting through this quilt,  hopefully if it's finished by the weekend it will only have taken me a week from start to finish.  I already feel such a sense of achievement and can't wait until its completed and I'm snuggled under it watching tv!
