The home stretch ...

Can you see me doing the happy dance? Surely the ground is shaking the world over! I just wanted to share that I'm on the home stretch now. The final touch will be to hand sew the binding to the back of the quilt. Yay!

The next steps are to write the directions and make a few 'in progress' pieces. We have a long weekend, so I'll definitely have a little time to myself to work them up. My deadline is for the quilt to be in Sydney on Tuesday (which would mean I'd need to post it Friday), but my editor has kindly allowed me to actually put it in the mail on Tuesday - I'm always a bit antsy about having a quilt sit around in a post office over the long weekend.

Thank you to everyone for your kind words and good wishes for Cameron. Kids bounce back so quickly. He's happy and chirpy again, and I predict back to normal very soon. Talk to you all soon! x o x

Tazzie, this is magnificent! You have such a marvelous sense of design. When are we going to be able to start buying your patterns? I don't ever see Australian quilt magazines here - can you let us know when this one comes out in a magazine so I can find a place online to order a copy?

Terrific! That outer border sets it off a treat!

Ohmigosh, Tazzie, you have outdone yourself. This is a magnificent quilt. Echoing other commenters, when and where can we buy the pattern?

This is simply delicious. I am thrilled to know the pattern will be available and have told my quilting pal who subscribes to Australian Quilter magazines that I will need to borrow that copy ASAP! I am happily collecting fabric already.
Thanks too for allowing comments and connections with those of us who are "blog-challenged" and can only lurk. You touch far more than you can know....

The quilt is stunning. And yes, I did feel the earth move a little...now I know why!
So sorry to hear about Cameron, but glad he is on the mend.

This is a gorgeous quilt, and I love the border you ended up with. Perfect! I'm in awe of your talent. Oh... and my sweet little coasters arrived last week. I have decided to give some to friends for Christmas, perhaps with a nice mug, and keep one for me.
