My Gardener's Journal Quilt is Finished!!

I'm so excited to show you my finished Gardener's Journal Quilt!   I gave it to my dear friend Jenny to machine quilt and I picked it up on Friday night on the way home from work (and had a lovely cup of tea and banana cake with Jenny!)   I'm really happy with the finished result!

A close up of some of the beautiful quilting Jenny has done - her brief was to "just do what you think" so I left it entirely up to her and I'm amazed as what she has done!  It's gorgeous!

I have stitched the label on this morning (having stitched the binding on last night while watching the ladies Australian Open tennis final).

And although this is not a great photo, I got David to hold it up out in the sunshine in the hope that you could see some of the detail of the quilting!   So glad it's finished!!  Thanks to Jenny especially for the lovely quilting and to Chookyblue and the ladies for the inspiration to get going and ultimately finish it!   I'll definitely be joining the next "Stitch A Long" which is going to be "Tis the Season" quilt!
