Sew A Row quilt completed!

Remember the navy fabric I bought at the Festival of Quilts? Well, I've used it to bind this sew a row quilt which I started as part of Piecemakers' challenge last year. I am notorious for my love of lime green, and decided to use green and blue as the basic colours. I think the yellow is just enough to add a zing.

The rows are (1) half a seminole (2) delectable mountains (DD always think that's quilter's porn, a euphamism for, well, you know what!) (3) drunkard's path (4) migrating flying geese (5) applique (6) sails (mine looked better upside down) (7) trees (they have got trunks, honestly) (8) chop suey and (9) the other half of the seminole.
It took a bit of getting together but I'm very pleased with it. Since our group is having an exhibition in October, I thought I'd better hurry up and finish it! Now, back to my mile a minute, of which more later!

Lovely quilt - the frogs are adorable! Blue and green together is a dynamite combination, and the yellow just makes it sparkle. :)
