Nearly done....

Considering that I have been kept very busy with quilting for other lovely quilters, I'm pleased with the progress up to this point, knowing for sure that I will be able to enter my quilt to this year Sydney Quilt Show by the closing date in a week or so from now. :-)

I was actually trying to get the quilt top, my 'Winter Star Quilt', for the Show done yesterday, but spending time outside with good company and beautiful afternoon weather was hard to resist.... The quilt top is kind of done this evening and ready to be quilted - a quilting pattern has already been chosen.

I had to buy the backing fabric from Hawthorne Threads in the US after trying unsuccessfully to find fabric that I had in mind for the backing locally.

I know too well that it would take a lot longer to get the binding done after the quilting if I didn't have the binding ready to be attached to the quilted quilt. I like to handstitch the binding down on the back of the quilt and this step actually takes the longest time for me to complete a quilt.!
