All done!!!

I have finally completed handstitching the binding on my Georgetown Circle quilt and last night we slept under it - thankfully the nights have been reasonably cool here in Burnie and so it wasn't too warm for a quilt at all.




The close ups give you an idea of the leaf pattern design that Pam quilted all over the quilt top. We chose a darker colour to quilt with as it drew the background colours together. Sadly the colours aren't really true as the overall look is much warmer than it appears here - very happy Jan!!! :D
