One more quilt, one less UFO

Wow time flies when you are having fun! I didn't realised it had been a week since I posted anything. I must say I have kept myself busy! Work is crazy mad at the moment and I added to that by deciding I needed to finish 3 quilt by tomorrow night. OK there are not big huge quilt but still, neither top was pieced completely a week ago. So I worked on the piecing for all 3 last week-end and got my Diamond Quilt ready for quilting

that was after I unpicked my last row as I thought it looked upside down.
my Advent calendar with all its pockets on
and my Hena quilt pieced by the end of Sunday.

I quilted my Diamond quilt first (which took 2 evenings in total and one for the binding) to be able to send it away to my Mum this week. I picked a lovely red binding (Joy by Kate Spain Moda fabric)
and the back was a brown bubble fabric by Timeless Treasure (one less in my pile of backing now!)
I kept the quilting simple by echoing the diamonds

and it was in the post on Thursday!

One OPAM for me, one less UFO and my Lazy Bums challenge completed, how good is that?
I hope my Mum's friend likes it now!
Thank you to all my fellow bees for making lovely blocks for me last year that are finally turned into a quilt.
