Thanks to all of you for letting me be part of this project, and a great thank you to Chookyblue, who make this come true.
Maybe I will join in some other time too!
Here is a more close up picture with some of the stitcheries. In the middle I have made my initials and the year this quilt is made. If I should forget it in the future.

Anyway, a teeny tiny little bit of shopping followed me home...
So I am all set and rearing to get onto this project!
Just when you are ready Donna, no pressure...

With work committments slowing down now, I've had the pleasure of getting back to my sewing machine.
The borders have been attached with a little green peeper to break it up. I've got a lot of left over fabrics so I think I will make a scrappy border once I get back to the quilting. I've also got some more blocks stitched that I want to turn into a little Xmas hanging.

I am very confident that I will now complete the quilt on time. I am stitching for a least an hour a day, but some days I stitch longer. I have all the fabric, threads and book in a bag that I can pick up and take with me if I go out. It is amazing how much you can achieve whilst waiting for appointments or picking up children from collage etc.

When I look around in the blog now, there are so many quilts that are finished. They all look gorgeous all of them.
Until next time - have fun everybody!
Here I have put all the blocks together. Just borders, binding and backing that is missing

I'm loving seeing how everyone is coming along with theirs, and I'm looking forward to see lots more completed really soon.
Can you please mark me off Chooky, and I can't wait to see what our next project will be!!
Keep stitching :-)
