A new top is finished

In November last year, we where a group of ladies from our local quilt guild who met for a sew-along to work on charity quilts. I had cut a lot of pieces to make a quilt from a pattern I did see over at Mary's blog. One of the other ladies brought the same pattern, too! Her quilt was turning out so great too :o)
I managed to piece all the blocks that evening, but they've been in a box since then....
Some days ago I started to piece them together in rows, and yesterday I started working on the border. I wantet to make the border a little easier than in Mary's pattern, but I still wanted the bricks to be surrounded by the white fabrics... Some thinking later, I came up with this:

I'm pretty satisfied with the result, and I hope to get to quilt it soon, and binding it. Here is a close up on the fabrics:

These fabrics have been in my stash for so long, and I'm glad I found a project to use them in. They are all from the same fabric line except the white one,  but I cannot remember the name of it... 

I hope to sew some more later this weekend, but since a cold is heading my way, I will find some stitchery to work on, and make myself a big mug of Tea and stay under a blanket for the rest of this day :o)

Hope you are having a great weekend,

Kjempefint teppe med tøffe farger. Du får ha god bedring også ønsker jeg deg en fin helg uten hodepine og snørr:)

Teppet ditt blir kjempefint. Flott løsning med den kanten. Nå er jeg spent på hvordan du kommer til å quilte det. Synes det var trøblete å finne på sen sikkelig måte å quilte dette slik at blokkene kom til sin rett.

Veldig bra resultat! Likte godt måten du løste kanten på. Det teppet kommer til å bli elsket av den som får det!

Alldeles nydelig Laila, heldig er den lille som får teppe.
Nydelige stoffer, alltid godt å ha "litt" liggende til å lage noe så flott av :oD

God bedring og ha ein fortsatt god helg. hk

Nice fabrics, nice top! I like the white borders around the bricks.
Hope you get rid of your cold soon!

I do love it and your border looks great. I didn't end up piecing the border either because I had so many blocks but one of these days I'll make it again and piece it as I originally designed.

I'm going to put the photo of the quilt on my instruction page (I hope that's OK, if not let me know) and I'll link back to your site. I love showing how others have interpreted my quilts.

Sorry for my delay on answering you and thank you for visiting my blog and leave a comment. I like very much the things that you make, actually they are a source of inspiration for me.
I work as a patchwork teacher and I need nice and not very difficult projects for my pupils to work with.
Hope to hear from you again.
