September Quilt Kit

Here are all the blocks together to make the quilt top.  It went together easier than I imagined and what was even more surprising, it's going to be the same size as it said on the pattern!
I have the backing fabric on order and it should be with me in the week.  I need to get some more batting then the fun will begin.  I've picked out a quilting motif and shall have a go at hand quilting it.  I don't think my machine can handle anything other than straight lines.

It may take a while, but let's hope it will be fun

Hey, you do one quilt and now we can't stop you! Good for you, another quilt top together and ready to be quilted. With all the hand work that you like to do, this should go pretty quickly. Have fun with it. It looks great!
