Voila!

It's lunchtime Sunday and here is the completed top. It measures around 66 x 80 inches (170 x 204 cm for us metric folk). Now I'll give it a rest for the afternoon while I do other stuff.

It's lovely, Shirley! I don't think there are many things that a quilter can do that is more loving than making a quilt for someone. I'm sure the recipients will be very excited to receive it.

What a lovely quilt, Shirley! The recipients will be thrilled to think that someone they don't know has gone to all that effort for them. It's a wonderful way to help them settle into their new life.

It's a super quilt and I'm sure the recipients will be thrilled not only with the gift itself but the colours too - they are so vibrant!

Wow that was quick! I've made one with the same number of squares in day but somehow it's so much more impressive when you scale it up. They're going to be delighted

Gorgeous colours Shirley, I love the shading in the dark green cloth makes a great contrast with the other colours.
Dull, cold and wet here in Oamaru today, hope it was better in Rangiora.
Greetings, Doe.

What a wonderful top! I've also been thinking about something Amish inspired using hand dyes, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
