I have everything now to get cracking with this quilt.

I ordered the extra Oakshott Charcoal on Friday, it arrived yesterday and whilst I was in Poole I nipped into Seahorse Quilting and snaffled the last of the incredibly bright print for the flange ... it is exquisite!

And as an added bonus, Michael Oakshott had slipped a free charm pack into my package ... showcasing 12 new and glorious colours! How lucky am I ?

So nothing to stop me now (yeah right!)   :P

Yesterday was good!

A trial binding made , attached and approved

That's 3" of Colour and 2" of Grey giving a nice 1/2" of Flange

And then came the real thing 9 widths of Bright @ 3" and 9 widths of Oakshott Charcoal @2"

Today I'm hoping will be the day I attach it ... but first the dentist .... Ouch?!  :S
