yeeeeeeeharrrrrrrrrr

It's finished, well the top anyway! I've put my heart and soul into this little pretty. I love it immensely. Hard to give away? No! I loved making it for this particular person, and I will be thrilled when she finally receives it.

The top finished at 17.5", and it now looks like a mini medallion to me, rather than an intricate 12" block, yay! Some simple quilting tomorrow, probably a fair bit, but nothing grand. Except maybe in the border before the 1/2" squares. Dunno, not sure about the binding either. I have an urge to use a hunter green, I've not enough of the pink, which would have worked beautifully.

I'm having to post to my blog from Flickr as I can't access blogger!! *sigh*

Cheerio for now,
x Mandy

It's just beautiful Mandy! Darn, it must be staying in Australia or it would have been shipped by now.

Stunning!

Yep Amy...I was thinking the same thing...of course that narrows it down for the Aussie/NZ swappers!;)

This is amazing Mandy...I just can't get over how nice and crisp those wee squares are all around it!
