Quilt Top Finish

I'm happy to say that after attending Urban Stitches in Melbourne over the weekend, I came home inspired to finish off my quilt (before I start something else)!!   I put this together on Sunday afternoon but it was too dark to take photos so have waited until this afternoon to have some good light .....  I changed the chair block to "baskets of flowers" ....



I love birdsong in the morning (as long as it's not too early) ....


Here is the last row on the floor ready to attach to the rest of the quilt ....


On my way outside, I threw it on a bed to see if it fit queen size ..... tick ....


And then hung it on the fence to try and get the whole picture in .... so now it's off to the quilter for me!   Thanks for all the inspiration everyone .... keep stitching .... you'll love the end result !!  Thanks again Chooky for all your organisation ... we couldn't do it without you !!   ........ Fiona H.
