Wow - Finished and She Loves It!

Thank goodness! Only 2 days late and after snipping 180 squares, I'm so pleased - better still, Angela loves her birthday quilt!

I used 5 packs of 36 Arcadia charm squares that I bought from the gorgeous girls at Provincial Patch - thanks Kerrie and Julie! Fortunately I had previously invested in a pair of Fiskars Snippers (titanium), so no tired or aching hands! Into the washing machine and dryer late this afternoon - mobs of threads and fluff - and now it has gone home with Angela, who can't wait for cool weather to come!

Tomorrow is another day, and I am doing trial runs on what could be a lovely new development!Oh, and I must do some Blogland Visits and Replies!

♥ ... Until Then ... Hugs ... ♥

This is such an adorable, cuddly quilt. The binding looks great - I think better than leaving it raggy! You've got such good instincts and a natural flair! Lucky Angela to have a mum like you!
