Girls Day Out Quilt in one piece.

Its taken me two and a half years but I finally have this quilt top in one piece ready to quilt.  We have just returned from our favorite holiday destination (my parents in Melbourne).  I squeezed in a couple of trips to spotlight and managed quite a bit of sewing while the little ones were busy with Grandma and Grandpa.

I've started the quilting.  I decided against quilt as you go mainly because of the borders, I wasn't sure how to tackle them.  I have the centre panel done which is the hardest part anyway. 

Lots of other things to show and tell too but its late, I've got to go to bed.  
Oh and my Google Reader account is out of control because I haven't looked at it for nearly a week.  Lots of catching up to do.  Oh well.


  1. OMG!!!! You did it! Congratulations!
