Quilt top - check

Even with all the packing we did on the weekend, I managed to get this quilt top finished. The sun shining through it distorts the colours a little, but I am pretty happy with how it is looking. It's much nicer than when the blocks were separate that's for sure. I really enjoyed piecing this quilt as it was simple and quick which allowed me to see results quickly (yes, I am impatient!). I put it together from 16 fat quarters and some white yardage. I do love quilts that use lots of fat quarters as they tend to be the predominant pieces in my stash.

Only 4 days until our move and I can dismantle mount cardboard! Thank God!

And today is Sampson's 5th birthday - happy birthday little man!

It's fabulous! I love the fabrics and the washing basket peeking out in the corner. Happy Birthday Sampson! Ann :-)

Love the quilt top, especially the fabrics you used in the centre of the blocks. So nice to see an Aussie clothes line again.

I love it!! The birds in the center blocks are so cute too.
