Finished....

Yes, it's finished. I am really happy with the way it turned out. I used the stripe for the border and the binding and I like the little bit of gold colour it adds. So Chookyblue doesn't need to crack her whip in this direction for TIS.


 Here's a close up - I stitched in the ditch around the stitcheries and the inner borders. I also quilted in the ditch for the outside borders and put two rows in the wide border.

Happiness is a finished quilt.
