~Progress on Backing for Gardeners Journal~



It's been a long time but now that Pirates of Penzance has finished I can start to get back to my GJ quilt...
I have started piecing the back Y I P E E 
I went to Finishing School last week and the advice was to square the fabric down to 38" and then make up pieces of 10 1/2" and now it is coming together beautifully
I can't be *H A P P I E R *

Thank you so much Chooky for the phone call....it was lovely to hear from you and as you said just put it together...
It's back to the cutting table for me now...Dzintra
