1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March.

Final blocks done

I'm really happy to share my final blocks here for July and August.  Now to get them together and quilted in ............only 14 days?!?   I'll give it my best shot! 
And just to show Chookyblue that I haven't forgotten A Gardener's Journal, here is a little progress on my final block ......... a few stitches here and there and it is growing.

Wonderful finishes here lately, the finished quilts are looking AMAZING.  It will be good to get my name on that finished list one day soon!   Until then ................... keep up that stitching............. Nicky

I was just thinking today that I should join my 2nd top together. Maybe we can see if we can keep up together!!!

Nice work! I'm sure you can get it done. Mine is stalled too, but I really want to make that deadline! (The GJ block is looking great! You'll have that finished soon too!)

The time is flying isn't it- way back earlier in the year it seemed as though we would have so much time to get it done...wish there were 31 days this month...as if the extra day is going to help me!

Just keep plugging away and you'll finish the GJ quilt. I hope you'll share the finished product.
