Gardener's Journal completed

 At last I hear you all cry!!!
It is done- stitched, pieced, quilted, bound, and rod pocket!!
I have totally enjoyed making this quilt and am so glad I changed my fabric choice about a month ago....

Not the best picture, but here it is on my loungeroom floor.
It will be the first thing I hang in my sewing room when we move into our new house.... 7th of December can't come quick enough, I cannot wait to have my own sewing room!
Right TTS stitcheries next.....
