A finished top

I managed to get some sewing done today, and I'm happy to report that my Gardener's Journal top is now finished! I just pieced the border out of strips and ran them around the quilt. I had done my Polka Dot Girls quilt this way and it really seemed to work with the scrappy look of the rest of the quilt. So now it's on to making the back and getting this one sandwiched and quilted! But that will have to wait until tomorrow! :0)
