Its finished in the nick of time!!

Yes, it is FINALLY completed!! I am so pleased with the way it has turned out!

My very first finish in Peg's challenge:


I set my own challenge which was to have this quilt hand quilted in time.... didnt think I would have the time to bind and put the hanging sleeve on, but, I did!!


The past week, every spare minute I had I worked on this:



YAY!!

Hmmmm, what project should I do now..........

I know that I promised to show you all pics of the gift Jan made for me, but I have been busy lol!! Will show you all next post!

Hi Sarah,
so beautiful - I love your quilt and I know how much work it is - I think you can count the the finish five challenge as completed. Love the colours you chose.
(I've started the "Leanne's House BOM" a while ago, it's so fun to work with her patterns)
Cheers, Julia
