Yayyyyy it is finished.....

My quilt is finished and I'm happy to say before schedule......
Yayyyyyy




The photo is a bit dodgy and I should've given it a press before the photo.......


I did stick to my plan and only used fabric from  my stash except for buying wadding and backing fabric....
I do hope you have all enjoyed the journey and maybe either finished or well on the way to it.....
I will be back nearer to the end of this year with the plan for next years quilt and I hope you will join in the next journey.....
If you have finished then send me a photo so I can add it to the page above....

Bye for now

A Wrap For Now

I'm a bit slow in sharing but I did manage to complete my top on the 30th of September.  Quilting will have to wait a little while but it can live on my spare bed for now .... the furniture is white with black handles so goes perfectly.


This has been a lovely project and a great group to be part of ... I look forward to the next journey. Thank you for your encouragement and friendship.

A Completed Top

Ruth's Quilt is a completed top ... love, love love it. Sitting on a queen bed, you can see it doesn't quite cover so I'm planning on adding a narrow black border and a 2nd border using the left over black/white rectangles. Hope that's ok to alter things a little.



Of course I couldn't help myself and had this book on my bookshelf.



Looking forward to joining in again.

Finished

Hi all, 
I'm sorry I haven't been around and even sorrier I didn't reply to the lovely comments last time I was here.  My life was sidetracked when my darling sister in law, suffering from MND, suddenly needed extra live in care 1000km from home before we finally said goodbye to her. Plus a trip to Canada to meet my only grandchild! 

Its all been a bit overwhelming for this homebody as has my UFO pile so I'm glad to say this is a FINISHED  project!

Not being a quilter I just did a simple double wiggly line down each long seam. My original plan was a straight line along each long seam and I'm not sure I shouldn't have stayed with that but this looks nice on the back.
