First finish of the year!

My Canuk Swap is now a completed quilt!  (I bet Jane and Chris can't say that!)  It's a bit of a cheat as a finish really, as it only needed quilting and binding, but at least it's done.  Not really my colours, but I think it's worked out well, considering the variety of blocks and sizes.  So far I haven't sent any quilts to Ann Hill for her attempt to cover the whole of a rugby pitch in Glasgow with quilts.  After the event they will be auctioned or given to old people.  I think this would be a good one for this worthy cause.  If you haven't sent a quilt yet, look here for the details.
So now I have permission to start another quilt, and as I need a sample for a 'Magic Tile' class I'm teaching this year, I thought that should be next.  Here is my fabric selection.  Hot stuff!
And here is my progress.  I'm wondering if there isn't enough contrast between my fabrics, but I'll keep going and maybe when the border's added it'll calm it down a bit!

Although I've made this design before, it was a long time ago, and I've already had to undo it twice!  Concentration is definitely needed!

Well Done Lynda...and no I can't say I've done anything with my Canuck blocks. :p
