1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March.

Smiling

Hello my friends.
I am smiling :)
My `Nature`s Journey` is finished.
I had to keep going as this was not to be a UFO.


I pegged my finished quilt to the side of the deck.
There was a bit of a breeze.
I am so pleased with the red and teal colours in this quilt.


Turned quilt around to show quilting at it`s best.
More machine quilting in this quilt than
my last so that shows my progress there. :)


I made a heart label as hearts in applique.
Thankyou to Chookyblue and Susan for SAL.
Thankyou Anni Downs for this delightful pattern.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
