The eleventh hour

Didn`t think I was going to make it. Was having trouble downloading my pictures. So out came the info book. Have enjoyed these busy blocks plus have all the borders done now.


Thought I`d taken a good photo of my ribbon tapemeasure but doesn`t show in this shot. Oh well at least I`ve finished and joined with the rest. Loved how the pieced blocks balanced the block.


My best friends have shoes to match their outfits. Wonder where they are going! Maybe a quilt shop for more fabric!


All together so far. Mays blocks finished. The other borders are sitting on the ironing board waiting for me to attach. I am so pleased with how the colours are coming together. Starting to think what colour to bind my quilt with!
Well must finish this as today is our 32nd Wedding Anniversary and as hubby has just come in from night shift I will go and join him in the lounge.
                                         Happy Sitching everyone,till next month.
                                                            Clare.
