It's a finish! :0)

Today I finished my Gardener's Journal quilt! It's hard to believe I started out with this...

...and ended up with this!


I even used jelly roll strips to piece part of the backing. The rest was a scrap of fabric I had in my stash. And I used jelly roll strips to piece the binding too!


And this is all that's left...five jelly roll strips that I'm sure I'll find a use for in one of my future projects! Thanks so much Chookyblue for organizing the stitch along. It was just what I needed to get this project started...and finished! :0)
