quilt in a day

so for our new course project we have had to choose a place in London to produce work from. ive choosen Deptford flea market where i have been collecting bits furniture and fabric from curtains, cloths, tea towels, handkerchiefs, table cloths, bed lining etc to redo objects.
my first piece is this quilt.

first i cut up all the squares from these curtains i had and from the middle built out around it in strips

then i lay it down with wadding in the middle and the brown back piece of fabric

i then quilted in pink thread, with the square pattern in the middle

then i blanket stitched around the edge the pink bits or fabric to neaten it up

i couldn't stop stitching and worked straight through the night to make this quilt in less then 24 hours!

it is the perfect size to pop over your knees, ready for these wintery nights that are coming up writing my dissertation!

mission accomplished
