a patchwork bed cover

About a month ago I started this -neverending- project. I cut the fabric and started sewing. But then I noteiced that I didn't cut enough squares.. so I had to cut more.. 105 squares.. maybe for advanced sever it's not many.. but for me it's really a lot! And a lot of work too!
It covers my bed perfectly (maybe on photos it doesn't look very good but I just can't make any good photos :( As you can see it is for a one person bed :)
The back of the bed cover is white- made of an old stiff sheet from my granny - good it is stiff because it makes it like more resistant!
The worst (the longest) task was to sew through every joint with a double seam. Good I had a double needle - it was my first time with it :) But it made the job a lot more easy!
Do you like it? Are you a patchwork fan? Well, maybe I don't have a lot of patchworks (only 3) but I really admire people who make very difficult quilts.. and I really love to see patchworks everywhere! :)

And what a beautiful suprise I found in the mail today!
 A beautiful tag from Martyna! I always loved her tags and now I have one!
And it has a wonderful and inspiring sign on it..
Thank you Martyna so so much! I don't know why have you sent it to my.. but I am very thankful! Thank you again!

P.S. I forgot to tell you that I got a tiny suntan today - maybe for you guys it's nothing important but it means that we had sun today! And it was first sun this holidays that I experienced! ;o

  2. Carmila - thank you! It is really crooked, but it's big so you don't really notice it hehe :D Oh and the funniest thing is that I didn't really sort the colours! I just took what was close to my hand and cut it! :D

  13. Aww! Thank you ladies so so much for your lovely comments! This patchwork was a very long project for me (even if it is a simple patchwork made of squares) and I'm relly glad you like it! Like -Jednoiglec- said, sometimes it's good to have a neverending sewing story!
