FNSI Results....

 I finished putting the final borders of cream around the stacked squares on the left and then sewing in all the ends as well as putting the final row on my finished block to make it 4 x 4 squares,just 1 more set of squares to work on and then I'll be putting the blocks together and seeing if I need to make it bigger or just add a nice sized border to finish this off.
This is still a work in progress,not stitching up as quickly as the first block but a little bit done is better than none in my book :) Today I'll be doing a bit of cutting up getting things ready to work on for a couple of swaps I'm in then maybe sit and stitch a bit more on this stitchery to get it closer to the finish line,I soooo want this quilt ready for this Christmas!

Gorgeous blocks Barb, the colours are so pretty. And your stitching is coming along well, borders always seem like you haven't done much :)
