Over on the Stitch-A-Long Blog there has been a hive of activity with lots of people finishing their quilt by the deadline of the end of September. ( It was a nice deadline - nobody is getting into trouble. It is just nice to have a goal.) I'm afraid I didn't get my whole quilt finished, as in quilted and bound but I did get my top finished before midnight of the last day. The fabric I used was Moda Adoring by Sandy Gervais and I stitched the blocks using lovely Cottage Garden Threads in the colour Plum Pudding.
I added and extra border to the pattern as I found that the light border I had chosen was too similar to some of the blocks. The simplest solution seemed to be to add the stripe ( which I am hoping will look good for the binding as well). It seems to pull the colours together nicely so I am happy with it.
It has been a lovely project to work on and I send my congratulations to everyone who has been working hard.
P.S. Yes, Chooky, I will be going back to working on my Gardener's Journal now.
