Almost finished!

Its been quite cool at night so to keep my fingers
busy I have almost finished 'Tis the Season'
All my blocks are stitched and all I need to do
is assemble and quilt it. I did tweak a few as my hubby
is not very kind with anything to do with Father Christmas
So I changed any blocks with reference to him. 
I was pleased and hubby quite likes it...
At least he won't complain with it hanging up for a few months a year...LOL.
 I am thinking of hand quilting it like the original but may machine stitch it yet!

Thanks Chooky for the push to get this finished...he he
 Now to finish my Gardeners Journal...
before you post another lovely stitchery quilt...hint hint. 

Happy Stitching All!

Great job, Dawn! It looks excellent! I'd recommend hand quilting it! (I do love hand quilting though!) I'm almost done handquilting mine and it does have a lovely handmade effect!
