Finished Top

I know that I've not been by lately but I've been busy...Here are the two borders I chose for my Gardener's Journal Quilt...I really am pleased with the choice...I do not have my backing, however, on a stop at Hobby Lobby this week for embroidery thread, I passed the fabric department and something caught my eye..You know how that is..so I will take this top and see if that fabric works as well as I thought it would.

The photo doesn't show it but those flowers in the widest border have yellow centers.


This is the closest  I could get and still get the entire top in the photo...I'm am quite pleased with the way it looks.
Happy Stitchin', Ladies!

Wow, another top done... Does it not feel like a huge relief to have yet another top done. I know that I do after finishing my Triple Irish Chain top so that I can focus on the Baby Quilt that I am currently trying to create...

GREAT WORK!

Great work! Well done!
Glad to see another person is using a lighter inner border. I love the one used in the book, but I don't have any yardage that would fit with the darker more positive inner border. I'm using a long saved range of fabric called Paris Flea Market, so I have to make do with what I have.

I love how your quilt top looks. The quilting is always where I get stuck. Takes a while to work out what I will do to finish it. Have along way to go yet so will try to have a plan in mind by the time I am at the stage you are.
