Just finished the top, only the black border to go. I have used the floral print as the focal point to this quilt, it was my old sundress from the 80s which I loved to death and had kept all these years (too big for it now) I love the idea that I can now have it, if not on me, on my bed. Will be hand quilting this with my hoop and black thread.

It's beautiful, the colours work really well. Excellent way to hang on to an old favourite.
