It's quilted.

After going around in circles for a while yesterday, moving blocks here and there, I did eventually remove a row, then had another thought and removed a column too! I put in the blue border.....

Then added a second border around three sides, before settling down and quilting the inner portion. I tidied those threads before going to bed last night.


This morning I have completed the quilting around the outside. Next up I'll be putting a skirt onto three sides and the binding. I'm not going to do that until tomorrow though, my neck and my shoulders are complaining! It was hard work getting this lot though my little sewing machine.

I'm off to cross stitch for a couple of hours now, maybe there is a movie on.

Have a good day.

It looks perfect. The small borders just make it now. You have been a busy girl. Hope you're relaxing, cross-stitching now.
