"Caring for Quilts Progress"

Well it has been another day of sewing marathon here.
The quilt top is now finished.





and every trick has been pulled to try and make the back big enough after finding that there wasnt enough green to for the whole quilt as it is quite large!!!!!!  Of course the easiest would have been to obtain a bit extra backing fabric.... but naturally there wasnt left!!!!

Frustation, but can honestly say it was a lot of fiddling to get the size right.

Time to put the machine away today - you know how it is best to start fresh another day.
Now just need to sandwich it all together and do some quilting - wish there was an "easy" way to do that job !!

Hope you all had a good weekend stitching!!!!!
