Finished siggie quilt

I'm a member of the Australian quilting on-line group called Southern Cross Quilters (or Scquilters for short) and they have a retreat each year, held in a different part of the country.  Last yeat (about this time) it was in Adelaide and I was supposed to go. Long story.  Anyway, one of the activities they have for us is a 'siggie square' swap.  Those that want to go make as many as needed - last year it was approx 70-80 (last year I don't remember back that far....).  A dear friend Lee-Allan went and she got as many squares for me as she could, also had each person put their name and address on an envelope, so I could send mine back to them.  A lot of work for Lee-Allan and much appreciated by me.  Well, after putting them together in a reasonable way and quilting it I managed to finish the binding yesterday - Yay!!! Here is the finished result:
Sorry about the angle of the image, but I don't have a bigger wall to put it on and I have to take the photo from an angle in the doorway of the spare room. Anyway I'm happy with the results.

I love your siggie quilt Joy. Are you heading off this year? I've just been having a look at your organized sewing space. We are about to move so the nwxt 12 months will be 'put it where you can' but after than I will be once again organized as I have been up until now (all packed, moving 23 April but we are having a week in Bright after Easter as I figured I would need a much needed siesta time before setting up in a very ordinary with a capital O rental.

Great siggie quilt - well done another WIP to cross off the list. Cheers from the very very wet Far North.
