Luckily for me the lovely Pip offered me some leftover pieces she had from the same designer which co-ordinated beautifully with what I had already and I was able to make enough blocks to end up with a square lap size quilt.
My quilting assistant Livvie of course was assisting me with the correct placement of the blocks!

Then came the hunt for a backing fabric. I had one of those wonderful moments in finding just the right fabric which turned out to be on clearance and saved me plenty! I love it when everything falls into place like that. Its a lovely mix of raspberry and caramel, hmmm sounds tasty doesn't it?
I'm going to give this quilt to my sister in law who is turning 50 late this month so I need to get it quilted! Luckily I'm off to a sewing retreat this weekend and I have got it pinned and ready to get stuck into when I get there.
A big thank you to Pip for her generosity in giving me her fabric to allow me to finish this one. If ever I can help you out Pip you know I will! And of course a big thank you to Jenny at the bank for gifting me the original fabric. I have shown her a photo of my progress and she's glad that I have finished the quilt off. I'm glad the fabric didn't go to waste!
Thanks for visiting today,
