Running away to join the circus........

The colour is a bit out on this photo, I took it outside this morning and the sun is a bit too bright but it's still dull in the house.....



......it's more accurate in the rest of them.










So that's it, finished!
Stitched, quilted, bound, embellished, label and sleeve on!
I'm happy............

But I do know why they call them 'challenge' quilts!

Now to make this..................



......it arrived yesterday, yum!!!

See you later.
