The Journey Is Over!

 After nearly 13 years (maybe even more) my Double Wedding Ring quilt is finished!
This is taken at Mum and Dad's place but the quilt is now safe in my sewing room.
It will look so much nicer on our timber bed!
On Mother's Day I finished stitching the binding down.

I'll share the journey of this quilt, which started back in 1999 when I was given these 
1930's fabrics, once I do a little research. I need to look at some old photos to see 
when I actually commenced cutting the pieces out. I know we were on holiday at 
Cape Paterson but can't remember what year. I did have it on a list on my 
pin-up board in the sewing room but it seems to have gone walkabout!
