In The Spring... Finished

Today I have finished In The Spring, a Gail Pan design that is a wall hanging & little table runner...
You may have guessed I love this design, having made it previously as a swap gift for my 
bloggy friend Fiona at Bubz Rugz
I decided to make a sleeve for the hanging (thanks for the great tips Shez!), and have online ordered some lovely hangers
The wall hanging is just over 16 inches wide & 18½inches long...
The little runner is 10inches by 15½ inches.

My nice straight quilting lines, thanks to the sticky tape! I'm a bit disappointed that I didn't choose a thread for the quilting lines that contrasted a bit more, but I'm still very happy with it all...
That darned blue fabric is such a show-off, it really doesn't look half as garish as these pics show it.
(I know I'm not too great with colours, but I'm not this bad!)

I spent some time yesterday working on some 'secret sewing' that will be revealed tomorrow...
I'm excited... stay tuned
