finally finished


I have finally finished a quilt that I have been making on and off for a few years. This one is for me. It isn't huge and I have made it to use in our lounge, to hang over the Ercol sofa which is nearly finished. Its all down to me now, when I can find foam at a good price and able to be cut to shape, I will get the cushions made. But it is now being used with the original cushions and a throw to cover them. 
This quilt is made from single log cabin blocks, backed with a vintage bed sheet and hand quilted in brown thread. 
I am happy with the finished product. Most of the fabric was bought years ago whilst visiting New York.

The colors of this quilt and the way you coordinated the back side, is beautiful! I think it add the perfect touch to any room. Great job!
