Finally Finished :-)

Well, here is my project completed .. yeah!!!!!. It's all done by hand apart from some of the binding, so it has taken a little while, but I'm happy with the way it has turned out. I may still add some embellishments here and there if/when I come across any bits and bobs that will suit it.

I'm loving seeing how everyone is coming along with theirs, and I'm looking forward to see lots more completed really soon.

Can you please mark me off Chooky, and I can't wait to see what our next project will be!!

Keep stitching :-)

Your quilt looks lovely and I like the silver cord you have added.

Wow, those blue fabrics really make this quilt so different than the others. I love the metallic trim around the border. Is it trim, fabric, or thread?

Kris said...

Love it! Well done! A very spectacular quilt!

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I've really enjoyed making this :-)

Talin .. The silver I used was just something I picked up when I was at Spotlight. I was looking for some satin ribbon for the binding, and came across a couple of spools of shiny silver stuff which just had to go on it too. It's called Celebrate and I hand stitched it on both sides.
