I'm not having much luck with my measurements when cutting down for binding, This quilt is actually 40 x 79 cm as the quilting with 12wt thread drew up the fabric more than anticipated. Red Stapelia is 39 x 80 cm as I made exactly the same mistake as I did with grey fingerprint quilt despite writing down all the measurements!

Helen Parrott's book. It's accompanied me on several train journeys, the format of 40 x 80 cm being a good travel piece to work on. This weekend I finally got round to trimming it down and applying a facing.
It looks quite sinister and plant-like reminding me of the carrion flower so I'm calling it 'Red Stapelia' .
