The top - it's done!

Today I finished the top for my mystery block of the month which Cathy Stevenson designed and taught. The first stage, which I finished yesterday morning, turned out really well - I would have been happy if we had stopped there....

First border

But lucky I didn't! Here's the whole shebang, put together last night and today, and I'm so happy with how it all came together! All those border applique pieces that sent me nearly insane were worth it.

All borders added

I'll be machine quilting this somehow ( it's bigger than I imagined!). Photos to follow...
