WIP Wednesday

Now I don't promise to do a WIP Wednesday every week, but this week it suits!
So I have been working on my D9P, finally quilting it. I'm quite pleased with the results, given it's the first time I've attempted something other than stitch the ditch. I quilted each square with a yellow and blue King Tut thread, specifically number 986, Alexandria. After I had finished, I had 312 ends to sew in! A couple of sessions in front of the telly saw this done. Now all I have to do is bind it. I'd love to bind it with the backing fabric, which I adore. The only problem is I'm not sure I've got enough and I've just agreed with some other quilty friends on EB not buy any more fabric until May 23rd! Surely if it I really need it Adds, it's not cheating?

Wow Kylie! Looks fantastic! I've signed up for that fabric buying ban but I need some for AJ's mystery quilt, so I won't tell Ads if you don't! LOL

I love the beachy colours - perfect for your new location! Great backing fabric, I can see why you want to bind with it. And if you need it, you'd better buy it! (After all, if you wait too long, you mightn't be able to get more!)

Love it. The colours are gorgeous. I thought the ban included a disclaimer that if you really needed it to finish something then you could buy it!!! I say go for it haha.
