Finally...

At last I can show you my finished Gardener's Journal quilt.... although the pics aren't the best....
too many shadows in this shot.....

I think it looks great on the bed, it's just hard to photograph without standing on the bed....
I was pleased with the quilting....


this is me... ahhh! its finished....

Many many thanks to Chookyblue and all you SAL girls, this would still be a kit sitting in my cupboard if it wasn't for all of you and your fabulous encouragement and inspiring comments and posts of the quilts that you have shown, thanks again.... 
and for all you girls who are still working on this GJ quilt keep at it because it is really gorgeous when its finished.... Sheryl.

Congratulations! I think it is the best one we've done so far....The wide border makes it almost a twin size.
