So, it was time to rectify the problem. I wanted something relatively quick, but that would also look pretty, so this quilt was born:
I seem to be going through a blue/green quilt phase at the moment! However, my excuse is that these are the colours Eleri wanted.
I quilted it very simply with my favourite wavy lines and added a navy and white stripe binding.
Unfortunately, I only had half a yard of this so had to add a small section of navy blue. The back is a lovely spotty green that I bought for this ages ago.
I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
