My Promise with Chookyblue

As you will have read -- Chookyblue and I set each other a challenge - to be strippers for Sunday.  I did already have some of my strips on - up to after the chocolate row, but I really wanted to finish the top. Well, I didn't get there - but I do now have all the vertical strips done and the other 2 sets are done and cut to size, so will hopefully be on by the end of next week.

As you know its a big quilt to photograph and today is drizzly wet and overcast so lighting is a problem - I just re arranged the lounge room and took a picture.


Thanks to everyone on the blog for all the encouragement along the way - and especially to the Whip Cracker.  And also to the girls at my sewing group yesterday for their encouragement (and compliments).



I have a few embellishments to add after the quilting...end of October did you say Chookyblue???
