A finished UFO

At last, this has been sitting in a box for at least two and a half years waiting for me to do something with it. Inspired by a photo in a book

this one I think, it looked fresh and clean and I had a blue jelly roll stashed away, I made the top. So it must have been started over three years ago :| Well it's finally finished, quilted with simple straight lines and now put away with others until I decide to use it (probably in the summer) as a bed cover when it's too warm for the  duvet - well we live in hope. Very easy to do as it is only squares and rectangles.
Ooops forgot the picture.

Triumph of hope over experience :D

Lovely, Mali. Why not use it now, though.

 I use my patchwork quilt all year round on top of my duvet! In winter I have a 13 tog plus quilt, in summer a 4.5 tog plus quilt, but I do live in Scotland in an old stone house. Using a quilt also saves me having to iron my duvet cover 0_0
