I like the background you used for your blocks. It has a soft look to it and makes the pattern even prettier. Congratulations on being finished! I have to add one more border still.

Looks fantastic Fiona and beautifully quilted.

Raewyn said...

Beautiful finish, Fiona, I love it! A great use of your day off :-)

I bet your Christmas decorations will go up early just so you can hang your quilt. It is beautiful.

It is lovely.
I have actually done my first border and half the second one. Still battling with my lung...the diagnosis has finally been made after all this time, a fungal infection. I started on some strong medicine today but it will be 4 months before I'm finished. The medicine doesn't make me feel good but hopefully I'll be able to sew soon.
Loving seeing the finishes.
