Sea Marquee


Not sure if this is the final title, but I finally started sewing these strips together this evening. This is the marquee pattern from FunQuilts Modern Quilt Workshop. It's going to be queen-sized and seems to be going together really quickly - nice and relaxing work for the end of a busy week!

This looks like it's going to be a nice quilt. It's good to see other people's colour and fabric choices - something you may not choose yourself that looks great when made up.

Hi Hedgehog! Nice to meet you - thanks for dropping by! Love your quilt. The colours are elegant and I like the block design. Reading more about Finland is fascinating. It's a country I know very little about.
