Block C...A Gardeners Journal!!!

Wow, this has taken me all day to put up...but finally, here 'tis...
Block C...A Gardener's Journal!!!


No Place Like Home seemed to take ages and then it all came together...
I must say I am thoroughly enjoying putting this quilt together...
Anni's instructions are just so clear...




I'd never done the triangles around a square before in but it was so easy to understand...
and here it is all stitched together!!!


I have cut the inner border (blue), but I don't enough of the red to do the outer border...
the binding will probably be the soft floral...
but I'm nowhere near that!!!

Happy Stitching everyone...Dzintra
