more weekend sewing

In addition to my basting drama, I also managed to get this quilt top finished on the weekend. It was made with a charm pack of Simplicity squares - very easy. I just love this range of fabric, it is so pretty!

I also made a pinwheel star to go on bottom right hand side of the back using more material from the Simplicity range. I managed to get the charm pack and the extra material from the US when the Aussie dollar was almost 1:1 - so this is a very thrifty quilt!
I think I might hand quilt this one with some pale pink pearle thread - use it as a bit of a practice before starting on my Leanne's house quilt.
And seeing as though I keep mentioning it - I thought I'd better show a pic of the top all together. Unfortunately this photo was taken in terrible light so the colours are not all true to life, but you get the idea!

I hope everyone else managed to get in some stitching on the weekend.
