tah dah . . . . . all finished


well finally my TTS is finished
and   i am only 24 days past the deadline


i have had a bit of a love hate relationship with this quilt
i loved the stitcheries


i put the border fabrics on as i went
then decided that i hated the red in the inside borders of the blocks so they were removed
and the blocks re-sewn

i struggled finding a border fabric in my local quilt shops
and end up searching on the internet for 2 hours 
to find this fabric

in the end i love it . . . 
so much that i took it into Newcastle for a photo shoot

i have really enjoyed this stitch a long
and all the people i have met along the way

Ciao

Beautiful...love that it went for a photo shoot :)...I can feel your pain, I had a love/hate when it came to the quilting part...once I resolved that it turned back to love/love...
