A Gardener's Journal - Quilted and Bound

YAY!  I have finished quilting my Gardener's Journal Quilt.  I love how it has turned out. Okay it is quilted and the binding is on, but I still have to stitch down the binding.  My daughter is holding it up. Oops her bed isn't made - cause it is bedtime and she is about to climb in.



and another view.  See at the top - that is my dog, Molly sleeping under the quilt.


Here is a close up of the quilting.  I quilted flowers in the borders.


Okay off to stitch down the binding and on to Tis the Season!

The quilt looks wonderful. I wish I had been game and quilted flowers on the border. Ah, there's always next time.Love the colours and fabric you used.
Your daughter's bedroom and bed look fine. I can see her floor! I can't remember the colour of my son's bedroom floor. It hasn't seen the light of day or any light bulb for quite some time. LOL... I certainly wouldn't take any photos in there, unless it was for a horror movie!!!!

I love the fabrics you've chosen. The quilt looks fantastic. Wish I'd done this one - maybe I still can. The colours are so lovely. Good luck with the binding.
