A 2012 Start...A 2015 Top...

Some Kind of Wonderful...the 2012 Stitch-A-Long project that very much stalled into Not-Stitching-Along...is finally a completed top...
I'm not sure what is going on with the top border, whether it has stretched and needs to come off and have another go or it just needs a good iron (which isn't going to happen anytime soon so worry about that when the time comes)...anyway...ta dah...the little pieces of white paper are where buttons will go instead of the pattern's applique and I also chose to omit the stitched words on the top border...can't be following a pattern to the letter now!!

Happy Stitching...

I reckon that top border will be good with a decent press with some starch.

A fabulous finish there Jindi's Mum, regardless of how long it took. (You cant hurry genius you know!)

Wonderful finish! It looks fantastic :) Well done for getting back to it, see all that intensive work the last month/s has been so worth it :)

Love your version of it. Perhaps it just needs a press just before you quilt it.

Nice job for a slow going project to play nicely at the beginning of a new year! There's plenty of time for that border piece to learn to behave before the quilting pulls it in line.
Love the bright colours.
