The top is done....

 I joined the Stitch-a-long blog back in 2010 when we were all making Anni Down's Gardener's Journal. I got quite a few stitcheries done but got a bit bogged down in the piecing. I managed to also do the next stitch-a-long quilt which was Tis the Season by Natalie Bird.
Fast forward to this October when our wonderful organizer Chookyblue challenged us to be finished by October 31.
 
 
 
Here's my finished top - all done with 12 hours to spare. I am not sure how I will be quilting it yet.
Even though it isn't a quilt yet I certainly have a great sense of satisfaction is getting it to this stage. It will be great when it is completely finished.
 

 
The design is an Anni Downs design and the fabric is Garden Party by Blackbird Designs.
