Progress!!!!! A Quilt Top completed!!!!


Well it has been a busy couple of weeks...
but this is how my Nature's was looking two weeks ago today!!!
centre not done, but  appliqueborders finished.....


 but I have been sewing......
 and stitching......
 and stitching..... even 3 at a time......
 and sorting.......
 ... and sewing
 and sorting........
 and sewing.....
 and sewing.......
 and sewing.......
 and finally .... I have made it up to the backing stage - all ready and joined!!!!!!
Now - the massive task of getting top/wadding and base together........
before the quilting starts.....
but hooray - the top has been completed !!
a long way from the first pic here which I took two weeks ago!!!!!


so.... for anyone out there who has put their quilt on the backburner, now is a good time to
get it out  and try and do some progress on it.... cause - it can be done.

you know the tune..... when we want to get something done.... we just do it!!!!.
