1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March. I blogged about this on my blog thinking maybe one or 2 others may join us and lots of girls indicated an interest so I decided to start this blog where we can all encourage each other to meet the goals set along the way....March 2010 -March 2011...........
2nd SAL ......well so many of the girls wanted to continue on with another project and some new girls joined us and now approx 91 girls are stitching Natalie Bird's Tis the Season. March to Sept 2011...............
3rd SAL....many girls want to stick with the SAL so now we have moved onto Anni Downs Some Kind of Wonderful - My Favourite Things Quilt.......Oct 2011-Oct 2012.........
Where are we now.....
4th SAL 2013...is numerous smaller projects from the previous 2 books Tis the Season and Some Kind of Wonderful plus some projects from Red Home by Natalie Bird approx 60 ladies stitching together.........

Had to share

I just had to share my excitement..... I joined all the blocks together today .... bit of a rough photo but my hubbie isn't a very good quilt holder, I have the wide border fabric but not the narrow border fabric so that will be my next job.


I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND SAFE NEW YEAR.

Thanks for all the encouragement with this quilt and I can't wait for the next one to begin.
Thanks to Chooky for this great quilt journey.
Helen
