Australian Summer Easy Street

Top is complete with borders. It is a biggggg quilt. The Backing is done too, had to patch together a nmber of fabrics for that! I have the wadding and it will be off to be quilted soon. 2377 pieces big!
 I didn't have enough of the fabric in the centre of the last border so I added the corners to frame it.
I do like this look. The quilt top went together easiyl once we had completed the 2 different blocks.
That took a little time. Boo keeps me company in the sewing room curled up on a high stool. Occasionally
rubbing around the legs to say time for a break pat me mummy. NOW mummy. If I don't respond.
This is one of the biggest quilts I have made and in a record 2 months as well. Impressive. Thank you Bonnie K. Hunter for this years Mystery quilt.
