I am finished - it WAS yesterday!!!!

Hey Girls!
I am pretty pleased with my TTS! I DID finish it yesterday, and sewed the hanging sleeve down early in the evening! It wasn't until I got to bed that I thought I forgot to put my pics up!



Happy with my hand quilting too! I quite like this part. It is a real nice feel to it!




I quilted in the centre of each border surrounding the blocks, then a 1/4" from each seam in the borders:




Thanks to Chooky for cracking that whip, Maree for telling me I forgot a letter in one of my stitcheries and to ALL you girls for the encouragement, and inspiration! They all look wonderful!

x Sarah
