A Finished Quilt Top

Last week I ordered some fabric from Sal Snippets the fabric is lovely and bright. I have no idea what I am going to do with it but I love it.

I recieved excellent service the fabric arrived within a couple of days and the lady very kindly sent me an extra piece. If your stash is running low (a problem we all suffer with!) have a look at her site, there is a lot of choice.

A very kind friend made me this lovely, gorgeous, colourful ever-so-posh shopping bag. Isn't it great? I went to M&S the evening before last and of course I used it.

It's hanging on my kitchen door at the moment because I like looking at it. She has lined it in red which is my favourite colour. Thank you so much Sam.

My half square triangle quilt top is finished. I used a fat quarter of each fabric and they have also done the border and there is more than enough left to make the binding.

The border is pieced from rectangles I had left over from cutting the squares to start with. The squares were 7" so I got four from each quarter which gives you some idea of how much fabric is left.

All I have to do now is layer it up and baste it, the part I hate. But I'm looking forward to quilting this one.

Sal does have some lovely snippets, doesn't she?
I'm sure your bag and patchwork looks brilliant, but my computer is running so slowly at the mo that I can't see the photos. Will look again when it's feeling better!
