It's a top

Yesterday morning about 8:30 i started with this
By about 10:30ish i had this
about an hour or so later is was here
 I had decided i would sew until about 3 pm & by 2:30 i was up to here
I was planning to come back today & do the final 2 borders but as there was nothing on TV i chose to sew with the machine rather than embroider. So here is is
Not the best photo unfortunately. But i got the top done at least. It won't be quilted before months end though.

Happy Stitching,

Wow. That's wonderful. I am still making 9 patches slowly so might there if I get going over the next few days.

That looks great Jeanette ... I may regret my decision to change the 9 patch squares to 5" blocks ... I'm sure we will all be happy with our end result ... what a productive day you had !!

Beautiful. I did the same as you to finish - sewed instead of watching tv - far more interesting and rewarding!!
