Quilt Top #1

I got busy on Friday and organised my blocks and stitched up my first quilt top. I have had to order backing fabric and also more fabric for the borders on quilt #2. I'm so excited to have it at this stage. I have half a block left to stitch and then I've got all my blocks done for quilt #2 as well.


So exciting to see that people have totally finished their quilts too!!
