Winter Wonderland - Top Done

Well, I'm so pleased to have those border blocks done on my Winter Wonderland quilt.  But just because the 24 blocks are done, didn't mean I was done with this project at all.  I realized that there was much to do yet.  Most of my rainy Sunday was spent cutting sashing and filler strips, measuring, piecing the border sections together.   Then today, the final step was to sew the borders to the sides of the stitched center piece.    
Even though the main feature of this quilt is the hand-stitched blocks, I do intend to machine quilt it myself.  I know what I would like to do, so I will mark the quilt soon, and then machine quilt this summer sometime.  Whew, I'm feeling so good for having this one done.    

The sun is out today, so I'm not starting anything big this week.  Might make a small project or two.
