Gail Pan's "A Christmas Wish" BOM....Another finish.


When I finished my Christmas Cards BOM quilt in the previous post it got me motivated to finish Gail Pan's BOM I'd been working on .The only thing stopping me from completing it was the fabric choices I needed to make for the last two borders.When my sister Anne came around on Friday to sit and sew with me I discussed my dilemma with her and when she left I'd decided on what I wanted to do.A little while later Anne returned after picking her children up from school to drop something of to me.....the fabric I needed to finish my borders raided from her own stash.She chose exactly the fabrics I would have chosen.The stipes and spots just suited the quilt beautifully.
Soooo Saturday I cut up the strips for both borders and the binding strips and Sunday I sewed like mad and put both borders on!!
I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE how it's turned out and if my big sis is reading this blog a very BIG THANK YOU from your little sis for all your help and support!!!

It looks great Barb! Today is my day to struggle with mine. My blocks are multi coloured Christmas patterns and I can't decide on the right colour for sashing. Back to my stash.
