Quilt top complete

This morning my sewing machine was humming, sewing the bottom border strip, made some months ago. Have  loved stitching this quilt and joining in with the SAL. Now to find the right backing to start quilting!

I still have fabrics left over. Thinking of using them on another of Anni Downs patterns.

This is the the last block and as you can see I`ve changed the  parcel block to knitting. I enjoy knitting. The stitches embroidered on is called knitting. I like my little design.


Instead of a chair I replaced with the tree from `A Christmas Story`. I have put Celebrate new life as this tree reminds me that the first christmas was the birthday for Our Lord Jesus. Gift giving for giving to family and friends.
Well enjoy your stitching,applique and piecing of your quilts ladies. Look forward to seeing your progress. Now to work out my quilting of mine. Next time I blog here will be to show my finished quilt. 
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
