My Favourite Things Quilt

My Some Kind of Wonderful Stitch-a-Long journey is over....
My Favourite Things Quilt is complete....
The quilting was done by Belinda Betts from 
Eucalypt Ridge Quilting
 and as usual Belinda has done a fantastic job.....
I did my usual run around the clothes line 
today to get some pictures for this post....
It was quite breezy and took me a few goes....
Quilting really is good exercise...Ha ha!
I just can't show you enough pictures of this quilt....
It really is lovely and was great fun to make....
Here is a close up of some of the quilting....
Just perfect for this quilt....
This shot of the back shows up some of the detail.....
All flowers and vines.....
And last job was to sew on a label....
I used one from Anni Down's Favourite Things range...
So as usual I am excited about a lovely finish
 but also a little sad that it is all over....
A big thanks to Chooky for all her whip cracking
 and many hours that she spends behind the scenes
 encouraging us to get a move on....
I thought I might have had to crack the whip on her but
 she has come through with a gorgeous finish as well....
Congratulations to all the ladies that have finished on time
 and to all the others, keep stitching girls
 because you will be so pleased with your finished quilts....
I do so hope that we may be able to start another Stitch-a-Long...
Please Chooky!!!!!!

Until next time, Happy Stitching

Kate

This is simply stunning. I was wondering where you get your Anni Down quilt labels from? I have tried online but can't seem to find a place to buy them.
