Proof!

So...the whip was cracked, and everyone was shuddering in their boots a little! The deadline is looming!

I wasn't too worried though :)  I'd completed all my blocks, and even put my quilt top together a couple of months back, so was feeling pretty confident that I could escape that nasty whip of Chooky's....until I realised that I hadn't taken any photos of where I was up to! Eeek!

So here are the last few blocks that I forgot to show you...

  Presents to share, an old wooden chair...


 ...and a heart to show my love for my family :)


Today wasn't a great day to take photos, and the wind was blowing my quilt top in ALL directions, but I managed a couple of shots...


...it's a BIG quilt when it's all together! I ended up pegging it to the back of the fence so you could see it all together.

So now I just have the quilting and binding to go, and I'm all finished. I'm planning to quilt this one myself, so fingers crossed I can fit it under my sewing machine :)  I'm hoping to come in right about on schedule...there's still a few weeks before the end of October :)

I'ts great seeing everyones progress...it seems that lots of stitching has been going on, just not so much show-and-tell (yep, I'm guilty).  Let's see what you've been up to girls!
