Paris holiday?

I have finished the quilting on my "Paris holiday" quilt. I remembered to put the label on before I quilted it, so I have quilted right through the label - that's pretty secure. It will be hard to remove proof that I made this quilt without destroying it.





I am hand-stitching the binding down now, then I have the rest of the hanging sleeve to stitch (yes! I remembered that too!!).






I have made a trial flower for the swirling border, and I love it, so I have more of those to make before it's finished. I would love to have it finished by Sunday. What is it now? Oh yeah, Friday!! LOL!!






Ooh, I hope I finish it by then.

Lorraine you've done a gorgeous job on this quilt. I cannot wait to get stuck into mine; I've designed mine - a bit simpler than yours - but exciting nontheless!The flowers around the top/ side look fantastic!
