Just like buses

You wait ages for one to come, then two come at once!  Just like my quilt finishes.
  This was made from a layer cake I bought to do a QAL, then decided other things were a priority, and didn't do it.  The fabric didn't go to waste, I used it to make a quilt of my own.
 The top was made several months ago, but I had to get fabric for the backing and some batting.  That arrived last month, but with one thing and another, it took a little time to get it to the sewing machine.
Now it has, I'm quite pleased with the result.  A lot of the fabrics, I wouldn't have chosen on my own, but the fabric in the binding seems to pull them together and give it a warm look.

It's likely to be a few weeks before there is another finished quilt here.  I need to pull out a top, and shop for the backing.

Gorgeous quilt! I've been having computer problems and I've been sick too so I'm way behind on blog reading! I've missed looking at you work.
