English Cottage Garden Quilt

Well after a year's work putting together this quilt the top is F I N I S H E D.


I have converted a counted cross stitch pattern into a quilt, each cross stitch equals a one inch square of fabric, and 5,424 squares later it is completed. At the present time I am embroidering tree branches and outlining some of the flowers and leaves, I am pleased with the way it is looking.


Now I have to decide what kind of border to put on and also how to quilt it.



Tomorrow I will post a photo and would welcome any suggestions you might have.

Below is a photo, (not a very good one) of the counted cross stitch as it appears in the magazine where I found the pattern.



Hope you are having a great Tuesday.
