Ready for quilting.

My bitty rows quilt is ready for quilting!
The pattern does actually call for two more rows, one of pinwheels and one of friendship stars, but I have opted not to make them. I like it just the way it is.
I did make a few changes. When I made up the heart row I could also see butterflies and angels wings made using the same blocks. So they were added. 
I love the way this one has turned out, the blue sashing unified it beautifully and the second wider border finishes it off perfectly.
I did purchase enough fabric to add another border, but I don't think it needs it. 
I just need to sort out a backing and this one will go onto my frame for quilting.
Sew, what am I sewing now?
I have a new start, but I'll save that for another day.
My Spring Queen, or M'Lady, as I have taken to calling her, is progressing slowly.
 Here you see the folds in her gown. It will eventually become obvious that she is seated, with her knees to the right of this image and the differing shades are the folds in her gown.
I'm still working on page one of the chart, and  have a looooooong way to go.
This design is much larger than some of my more recent cross stitch pieces.
My day off today. I have loads to do before I can play.
What ever you're doing today....
Have fun and sew.

So many cute blocks. The borders really do a nice job of tying it all together.

Nice finish . I like the butterfly and angel rows...
It's nice to see the cross stitch come alive the more you stitch.

Love your creative additions to the bitty rows, making it even more unique! Have fun playing with the quilting. You can dream up designs for the rows as you stitch your pretty lady!
