the last of the GJ blocks................

Block F finished yesterday morning...........
I changed this one.......no dog beside the lady or cat on her lap.........YUCK...........and I changed the glass to a wine glass............now I can kick back and relax in the garden..........
Block I - finally I got the ladies finished........very late last night so then I had to wash out the marked pen and dried it with the hair dryer so I could finish piecing the block.........
and then of course I had to get the last blocks all joined together...........
At midnight I was not going to start thinking about borders..............tonight hopefully...............back to work today..........bugger..........
%%%%
the girls have been so motivating on the Stitch-a-long blog.............they are a hive of activity at the moment.............
we have 9 finished and bound quilts and approx 15 to the block/top stage
Catch you later..............

  4. Your quilt top looks wonderful, Donna. Has been worth all the hard work when you see it all together like that. Being in a group doing one particular thing is a great motivation. Hope you have a good day at work :)

  5. Well done, Chooky, a marathon effort. Looks as if making it in a group stitch-along is an extra incentive.
