Marmalade Diamonds

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.
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, I have spent the entire night on this and have quilted this in an all over stipple.  Not long ago, I completed hand stitching the binding in place as I could not go to bed until it was done.

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. Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille.

Wonderful finish! The best thing to do when the house is empty is to sew. No need to stop to make dinner for the family and no interruptions!

Gorgeous Sue.....will have to follow up on this pattern and add it to the UFO pile (me thinks!!!)
Is it an existing UFO (from before Dec 2012) or is it a new one? Either way, I love it!
hugs xo
