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

2nd SAL ......well so many of the girls wanted to continue on with another project and some new girls joined us and now approx 91 girls are stitching Natalie Bird's Tis the Season. March to Sept 2011...............
3rd SAL....many girls want to stick with the SAL so now we have moved onto Anni Downs Some Kind of Wonderful - My Favourite Things Quilt.......Oct 2011-Oct 2012.........

Finished!

I'm really happy to share some photos of my finished - quilted and bound - quilt.
I may have got a little carried away with my quilting but once I started I couldn't stop :-)
I cross hatched in the squares and then did a more dense filler in the applique/stitchery blocks.
Then quite dense feathers in the border - that took forever but I got there in the end!
So happy with how it turned out... thank you Michelle, this was such a lovely pattern to make.
I hope you're all making a little progress on your Holly Cottage Christmas quilts too :-)
Happy Stitches, 
Raewyn.
