ROW BY ROW QUILT

I cannot believe I have finally finished this Quilt. I am so pleased with it. I loved doing the rows and swapping with the girls when I was in the Yahoo group with them.
Ange, Maggi, Marian, Jytte, Fiona, Kerstin and myself made a row for each person, Ange was the one who sorted it all for us. It was great receiving the row made especially for us each month.  I would recommend anyone having a go at this if you can get enough peeps interested, it is a fun quilt to make.

THE WHOLE QUILT
I didn't want a long thin quilt so I laid the blocks out into a square
and just added the strips to make it work out...
 The back of the quilt...
 These are the centre three rows, I think they are
Maggi's row then Ange then Marian...I hope!!!!
Ange had done some leaves in variegated thread on her row
and I used that for the rest of the quilt, I even found the same thread,
each row has it's own style of quilting...

Thank you girls, I love this quilt and it will be used a lot I am sure.

Lovely Jan. I really must get my own row made and then get mine together. Like the way that you have used some of the rows for the sides.

I finished mine some time ago.
