Colourful Grannies sewing machine cover

The granny square sewing machine cover which I started back in July is finally finished.
I have just quilted it in straight lines on the diagonal, then backed and bound it in dark grey, using some yellow measuring tape ribbon for the side ties.
I was going to make it double sided but I love these fabrics so much that I just wanted to always have them showing.
So my Singer is now happily sitting under in this sewing machine cover which was totally inspired by the lovely one Debbie made for her daughter. And as Debbie had also sent me these very cool Stitch in Color prints when we swapped fabrics recently, it was quite appropriate that I use them for this project:)
