Bindings Galore

 Gardeners Journal is finished!
I tell you, it was hard at times to keep working on this quilt for someone who likes to chop and change projects; but the encouragement of the Stitch-a-Long was fantastic! Thanks to Dale, Peg and Chooky who got it started; and thanks to Chooky for running the blog.
I am so so SO pleased to have this quilt finished, an achievement!


 I have also finished binding FORKS, it has only taken a bit over twelve months from start to finish, LOL!
I am marvelling at this quilt, it looks so different with the binding on!


 I love the backing too.

 Forks completed.

 I started on a baby quilt this morning for my sister. DH picked the pattern out a couple of days ago.
The crosses are dainty!

Oh Wow! you've been busy, they all look terrific! I have really struggled to stay focussed on my Gardener's Journal, only 2 blocks to go.

Both quilts look great - very different from each other but wonderful. Isn't it nice to finish, especially if it's been a long time coming? I only have to sew down the binding and do a label on my GJ. Then I really have to work hard on the bed quilt I owe my garnd-neice. It's a bit late!

Two great finishes Bec. I'm still hand quilting Down in the Garden, so I know how much work is in involved in a very similar quilt.
