MY HONOUR quilt is finished

I have spent a great deal of time finishing this quilt.


I have my sick grandson, NICHOLAS,  here for a few days and he was being a great helper.
Getting some fresh air before more medicine and a nap. 
He always wants to help so here he is showing off the POPPY backing.  Very suitable for this ANZAC honour quilt. Read more about the story of this quilt by clicking on the tab "HONOUR QUILT 2014" at the top of the page.

I have quilted starting in the centre with a star and working my way out. Boy, did it take ages. I think it was worth it though. I am happy with the finish.

I'm off to the Kilmore Quilters tonight to show it off.

Now to link up with NTT over at
