Saturday's progress

 These were the final two blocks put together on Friday.
 Saturday was the challenge of putting all the blocks together, and despite the help of my furry friends, just after lunch I had one big block.
 I need to do some shopping to finish this one, I need the backing and border fabric.
 I've even got enough to do a couple of pillowcases.  Once these are quilted, I'll cut them to size and I'll have a complete bed set.
This is by no means perfect, I have come a long way from when I first started this quilt.  I am sure the next one, if there ever is a next one, will be so much better, but I have enjoyed the journey.  I can't wait to see these completed and in use.
