Quilt top

This has been occupying my time the last couple of days. It's not the neatest I've ever made but considering that my attention has been distracted from patchwork and quilting for about the last 7 years or so it's not too bad. Very basic using a couple of charm packs but I enjoyed working out the colours, patterns, lights and darks.

I've basted the backing and wadding into place and now am hand quilting it - again very basic - but I do so love to hand quilt. I can do all the free hand machine stuff but there is something so satisfying in the actual stitching square by square- it's always been my favourite bit.
