It's finished.............

The Anniversary quilt is finally finished..................
...............sorry about the quality of the pictures, it was late in the afternoon and the best I could do was on one of the fences and on the house gate. Still it's nice to be able to take it outside without rain or gale force wind!
I'm sure they are going to love it.
I'm so thrilled that I finally got the confidence to machine quilt, this has the centre panel hand quilted and the borders machine quilted with straight lines and once again, I'm amazed that I've finished it ahead of time.

So, what's next??

OH-MY-GOSH Lizzie this is just amazing, what an incredible gift for your parents 60th anniversary! I love everything about it....the beautiful centre panel, the quilting (esp how you have quilted the vase, the little strip where you have written who and what it is for, and those borders frame it so perfectly. If they don't cry over this present, I'm not a quilter!!! FABULOUS!xox
