nearly there


well as you all know i have been working on my quilt Durlindana for just over a year now and well she is nearly finished


as you also know i had some problems with the bias edges stretching
but this is the top
(before i started quilting)


this is how i quilted the blocks



this is how i quilted the borders
( i am showing you the back because it is easier to see)
i did a little free motion quilting
it's not perfect but it is pretty good and looks great on the back
sadly you can barely see it on the front


this is the design Miss S created for me for the corners


and this is where i am up to
binding

i really like binding it is that sense that it is nearly complete

i probably have just over one side to go

would like to get it finished before Tassie but with under two weeks left and lot's of things to get organised. . . . . . . . . i may be pushing it

but hey you will all be proud of me i have my sewing stuff organised

hope your hands are working on something that you love

Ciao

Googy girl
