Some sewing at last!

Hmmmm, it's been a while since I did any sewing but an unscheduled day off work due to general unwellness has it's perks as I've managed to whip up a quilt back for the wonky blocks quilt I started ages ago. Here it is:
I've used the larger pieces of scraps that I had left over (due to my schoolgirl error in making the blocks too wonky) to make the same size blocks as the front. I'm planning on quilting this with straight lines but all over the place, no repeating, up, down, left, right, diagonal, hey whatever I like. I figure that as it is a wonky quilt so why not go mad! Hopefully I'll get it finished before September* as I want to give it to Digby for her 7th birthday, I think she has probably forgotten that I've started it so it should be a surprise.
*Obviously I want to get it done before then, but this is my ultimate deadline!
A little bit more sewing this afternoon too - Hubby is off on a stag do at the weekend and wanted a pink cloak. I'm not asking why or what for, I just did it.

I am loving the colours very bright and cheerful. I started a blanket ooooo about a year and half ago now, it is still no where near finished, I really need to pull my finger out and start working on it again, but we shall see : ) xxx
