Finished!

I have a finish for June ... my Friends in Stitching birthday quilt. Lynda sent me the fabrics and spool block pattern in February so I'm quite pleased to have this project completed well inside the 6 months allowed. The only fabric I added was the dotty sashing fabric ... think it works ok. I was able to use up most of my scraps in the border.


The quilting is very simple ... mostly in the ditch except for in the plain pink sections.

 

The backing and binding are both Simplicity .... leftovers from previous projects.

 

And as you can see it has been throroughly scrutinised by the resident quilt inspector!


Bye for now.
