The final stitches are in....

...and I'm all done!

 The procrastinator in me dragged the finishing process out for much longer than it should have taken...but late last night, the final stitches were done. It came out very pink :)

 Luckily I had the quilt label already prepared LOL...making the quilt label can sometimes take me weeks :)

 I quilted much the same as the original quilt...with all the bright colours and detailed stitchery, I felt that it didn't really need too much more.

It's almost a shame to have to put it away for Christmas.

Thanks so much to all you lovely girls for your encouragement along the way...it's been fun!

Bring on the next one....
