Gardener's Journal Finished, April Blocks Finished

I have finally finished the binding on my A Gardener's Journal quilt.  Boy that took awhile, but I love it!  Ooops the date says April 30, 2010.


Also finished the Tis the Season April blocks just in time.  Ha ha wrong date too!  I'll have to fix that!
