Finished Quilt Top

After at least ten hours of sewing yesterday, my first full-size quilt top is finished!

It’s about 150 x 200 cm (59 x 79 in), and the pattern is called Plain Spoken. It’s from Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr‘s book The Modern Quilt Workshop.

The colours of this quilt were inspired by the colours in our living room, especially the couch, pillows and the table runner:

Now I’ve got to make up my mind about the backing fabric (I’m also going to include at least one row of the front pattern, since I had to re-sew four of them because of a difference in seam allowance), the binding and the thread colour and pattern for the quilting. Any suggestions?

The Plain Spoken quilt pattern seems to be very popular – take a look at other people’s Plain Spoken quilts on Flickr or Dioramarama’s Modern Quiltalong. There also is a Flickr group with photos of other quilts from The Modern Quilt Workshop, the Modern Quilt-Along.

(Wow, three posts in one day, that’s more than I usually manage to do in a month these days!)
