Latest efforts in patchwork

A while ago on a visit to Hobby Craft I bought this pack of 6 fat quarters
 
And with some white sashing and some contrast fabric I have made this
 
The colours look different but I can assure you they are the same! Although this is just squares and rectangles again, all the cutting and sewing is practice and I am getting much neater and all the corners fit. In the sashing the contrast squares are 2"x 2" so I needed it to be accurate to fit.
It is lovely and bright in the conservatory and I have enough left over to make some matching cushions.
I am loving this sewing and have already started a new quilt!

That looks great. I had those exact fat quarters in my hand and put them back because I din't really need them at the time. Now after seeing your quilt I wish I had bought them.
