Hearts and Flowers finally finished!


I finally put the last border on my Hearts and Flowers quilt.  This has been a rather fast journey.  I started this quilt on August the 28th and completed the top yesterday October the 8th.
The quilting will be another story since I don't seem to get that done too quickly.  I think the piecing is my favorite part.
I am debating with myself now-- trying to decide-- if I should take the border on the right off and turn  it around.
I didn't notice  how different it looks until I saw it in the picture.


I now need to get busy on some of my other projects...things I hoped to have finished by Christmas but are not looking so good since I became involved in all this applique'.
