Drum Roll Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May I present my finished top.


Terrible photo, I know,and I have not pull off all the loose threads. I just wanted to get a post up asap.
This will be all I can manage at the moment. I'll have to carefully fold it and put it aside. I have a few other projects with looming deadlines. There is my first SSCS, for a start.
I want to think carefully about quilting it myself. I have a few ideas. There is no point pinning it if I cannot start straight away; too much humidity will affect the pins.
I was thrilled as those last few stitches went in. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this stitch along.
Thank you Chookyblue and assistants for keeping this all going.
Thank you to the participants for sharing, encouragement and ideas.
 Love
Kayly
