A finish for me...

At long last this quilt is finished. I started it 2 years ago and while the stitchery only took a few weeks to complete I decided to hand quilt it. I worked on it for awhile then got bored so it sat in the wardrobe for at least 12 months then last week I decided to get it finished and all last week all I did was hand quilt, before work, after work, after dinner and before bed. Whew, now its done and today I sewed on the binding now I just need to sew it down. I'm so pleased with it. This is my favourite block.

Now that project is almost out of the way I sewed borders on my Family Values blocks that I did quite some time ago, I am using Kansas troubles fabric called Vine creek, its so beautiful. I use Kansas troubles alot in my quilts which I'm sure you have noticed.
I hope you found some sewing time this weekend.
