Its been a busy night

DH is away for two days (and one night) at a golfing retreat, and DD is staying over at her boyfriends house so I am home alone,  all but these furry friends.

Well what does a girl do when she is home alone? -  Sew of course.
Marmalade diamonds has been sitting all pinned ready to quilt for a couple of weeks now, so I got an early start and quilted this in an all over stipple.  Taking a break for some take away Indian, I finished it about 10 minutes ago, hand stitching the binding in place.  My shoulders are sore, and I am super sleepy so I think when I clear my bed of furry family members I will be straight to sleep.

This pattern is my version of fresh diamonds designed by Anorina (Samelias mum).  She has an easy to follow tutorial on her blog on how to make this quilt.
I have named my version Marmalade diamonds after the name of the charm packs that I used in the quilt. Marmaldae by Bonnie and Camille.
