Now, onto regular news.
Yay!! I finished a quilt that has been hanging around for a long time. I do know why I didn't finish it earlier - I didn't have a specific purpose for it, but now I think I do. We've just purchased a new king single bed and this big quilt will work well on that bed.
I started this quilt back in 2013 after I'd finished my Bordered Peacocks quilt. I was so eager to get the perfect fabrics for the Bordered Peacocks, I ended up buying far more fabrics than I needed. Sound familiar to anyone?

So I thought I could just cut the left over pieced into 2.5" strips and use a jelly roll pattern to make another quilt. I chose the Stacks of Colour pattern from one of Pam and Nicky Lintott's jelly roll books.
This quilt is quite dark, so I used my Wonderfil Dazzle and threads because they have built in sparkle and give the quilt a little lift. It's very hard to see the sparkle in photos, but it is there. I just quilted straight lines down the quilt about 2.5" apart.

The border and backing are beautiful prints from Timeless Treasures, designed by Chong-a Hwang.
