I started making the blocks for this quilt earlier this year and put it aside because of time constraints. The Christmas break seemed the perfect time for some slow machine stitching, while listening to a non quilting podcast - Chat 10 Looks 3 which I found very entertaining, although non Australian listeners might be a bit baffled with some of it.
I finished the quilt top late yesterday afternoon, and am really pleased with how it has turned out, I had a rough layout diagram but that went out the window as it meant piecing some more diamonds which I did not want to do. I ended up filling in the top and bottom with the same fabric that I used for the fan blades. I have the batting and the backing fabric so I just have to sandwich up the quilt ready for quilting, whenever that happens.
