Borders...tick!

It's taken me a little while...even more than just a little while LOL...but my borders are now on!

Tomorrow this top will be heading off to the quilters, so that she can work her magic...quilting is really not my thing! The borders have toned down the brightness of the quilt quite a bit, which I was really happy with.

Wishing you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a Happy New Year!

I'm looking forward to seeing lots more finishes of A Gardeners Journal in the New Year (wink!), so that we can all start our lovely new project together.

So pleased you have finished your GJQ Susan it really looks pretty. I completed mine in Dec.2009 working on it on Sunday afternoons. It is a really lovely design.

Thank you for sharing.
