I finished the quilt top this morning and pieced the backing this afternoon. Miracles of miracles, I actually had a big enough piece of batting in my batting stash, so I might even get it layered tomorrow.

@Ellabella @Pearl @Lowena @StitchinTime @maliw 

Okay Ladies

It is now July and tempus is starting to fugit ..

Remember I need your finished Project Linus quilts OR 3 good pics to showcase them in my sweaty lil hands by the end of the month so we can have our competition.

IF you are taking the quilt to FOQ this year, take a pic of the front and back and any detail you want to highlight.
Each quilt will have 3 pics in all.

If I have all the entries in before then, we will run the competition early !

@Iminei My quilt was finished last night so it just needs washing and it will be on its way to you later this week or early next week.

What Lowena said.

I think I'm going to have to bow out of the competition as I am unlikely to be able to finish by the end of July.  I hope to be able to have it finished by the FoQ.  I have been working 5 days a week and have been asked to stay on for an extra week.

I've applied to be a steward on Thursday and Friday but this hasn't been confirmed yet.  I'm going on Saturday.

I've almost finished the top, I was hoping to finish it today but was at DD's from 10.15am until 8.30pm so no sewing today. I am hoping to get it finished ASAP and will take it with me to FOQ, photos when it is finished. Thanks for the push Iminei.

I'm sandwiching mine tomorrow. I might not enter it for the competition though. It's nothing special design wise, and I'm not as pleased with the colour scheme as I hoped I'd be. Also, I'm backing it with fleece ( a Linus favourite ) so it won't look up to much to photograph. I will take it to FOQ though, or post it first to @Iminei  if it's too bulky to carry on the bus.

Fleece backing looks OK in photos, indeed you can't usually tell what the backing is.
