I am delighted, however, to finally be able to post that this quilt is finished!
It could have been finished a couple of weeks ago but my husband was using it to keep warm whilst staying up all night to watch the Ashes Test Cricket on TV. I had to sneak it away in between Test Matches to work on it, and only just managed to finish the binding last night before the first day of the Final Test Match :) Sadly, the cricket has not been as heartwarming as the quilt, well not if you are an England supporter that is!
I used the maroon/gold spot fabric in the blocks for the binding, which meant that the only fabrics that I actually bought for this quilt was the marbled brown for the sashing and borders. As I have resolved to try and use up more of my stash in 2014, I am hoping that this will prove to be an auspicious start :)
This quilt has been on nearly all of my Quarter FAL lists for 2013, so I am doubly delighted to have finished it in time for inclusion in the Q4 FAL too. I have another two BOM quilts to complete and will be adding them to my list for the first quarter of 2014 in the hope that it will spur me on to get them all done and dusted.
I have enjoyed making this quilt and have definitely learnt a lot from the BOM, but I think I will be giving BOM's a rest for a while, once the others are finished. I am not really sure that the sampler style of these quilts is me. In 2014, there will be a wedding, a Diamond Wedding Anniversary, a retirement and a New Baby in our family, so there are plenty of opportunities coming up to try out new patterns and quilt styles.
