Lookie what I made today

I finished a quilt top for a little wall hanging I had promised my husband for ages and ages. I had a fat quarter of fabric with mod little radios (thanks, Jacquie!) that I intended to use for a small quilt for my husband's computer room. He's a radio buff and restores old radios for a hobby. Here's one little radio I fussy cut from the fabric: And this is what I made!
I found some great music and musical instrument print fabric from Kauffman, and matched solid colors with the radios. They, I just distributed the colors in the framing and the inner border. It's going to have red binding, and the black print on the back with a stripe of all the colors pieced together. It's called "Listen to the Radio".
I didn't even start it until 9 o'clock this morning and had to stop for dinner. It just fell together with ease, even the mitered corners, which are not my favorite thing. I love it when I can finish a project so quickly. After all the big quilts I have been making (and smaller quilts with a billion small pieces), this was fun.
