Ta-Dah!

Happy New Year  to all, may 2013 be a Healthy, Happy and Quilty.
 
I have been busy sewing between Christmas and the New Year as I've been trying to finish my Sundial quilt. I got the blocks on each side sewn on but didn't quite finish the top and bottom ones before 2013 arrived. 
 
 
 
 
In the last couple of days I attached the top and bottom blocks and sewed on the border. This is a large quilt. Too big to be held up by one person, so you'll have to wait for a better photo.   Ta-Dah! it's finished and I'm really pleased with how it looks.
