Tis the Season to finish a quilt.........

It was after 11.00 last night when the final stitches were made on the binding ................ nothing like leaving it to the final hour, right?     I am so happy to be finished this quilt, one that I have enjoyed working on along with all the other SAL'ers.  Thanks so much for all the encouragement and to Chookyblue for keeping us all on task.


I found this French General fabric from the Pom Pom de Paris range, and loved the birds that are flying around in the border. 


Congratulations to all the girls who are already finished, and I can't wait to see all the others soon.

Take care ............................ and of course, happy stitching ................Nicky
