I had to have a break......

.... from these boxes....


I had already managed to make the border from the 2" blocks....


... and whenever Hubz wasn't looking I hid in the sewing room and did a bit more.... (he thought I was sorting stuff!!)


.... but I discovered that this is true for me....



... and this morning whilst Hubz caught up on the World Cup Rugby he had recorded, I did a bit more 'sorting'.....


I love this top......


This is Anni Downs "Natures Journey" and I have used a range of French General fabrics "Lumiere de Noel"


... and I purchased some plain red French General for the binding.....


... now it's folded up together and packed in a box.....


Big thanks and Hugz to Chookyblue who hosts the StitchALong and trusty Susan who helps out with a bit of whip cracking..... and all the girls who sewalong and are so encouraging to each other....

Righto, Gotto Go... I think oven cleaning is the worst job in the process of moving house so I think I will get it over and done with.....

  19. Your quilt is so beautiful. I know exactly what you mean about packing. We moved about two years ago and it was so hard. I kept hand work out to keep me somewhat sane, because you can only take so much packing. Good luck on your move and the dreaded unpacking!
