Finished!

Here is my Natures Journey. It's finished. I'm sooo happy. The wall hanging is quilted by Merete Ellingsen. The quilting pattern is called Angel wings. At this time of the year the days are quite dark, but yesterday we got some snow. I tried as best as I could to get an okay photo of the quilt by taking it outdoors. If you see something white on the binding, it's a little bit snow :-)
This quilt top is made only from scraps/stash. I think that's great to know.
I'm quite satisfied with the result, but of course the needle turn applique are not perfect "here and there". Thank you very much to Chookyblue and Susan for hosting this stitch-a-long! I would never started with this quilt without being a part of the group. Thanks to Anni Downs for the great pattern!
Also a thank you to all who have given positive comments to my posts along this journey! I have enjoyed reading them all.
Christmas is just around the corner. Warm wishes for a Christmas that's Merry and Bright!

Wonderful!!! It looks really lovely and the quilting pattern is gorgeous. For a quilt that has only come from your stash you have been able to go with the general theme from Anni.
Congratulations on the finish!!

Well done! It has turned out beautifully. So good to only use scraps and stash. You have inspired to have mine finished before the New Year. Only the binding to go.
