Finished the top

Today I bought fabric for the outer border and finished the top of the log cabin quilt. The binding will be black.

The quilt is sandwiched now, but before I start quilting I want to read the book Quilting makes the quilt by Lee Cleland, that Jenny recommended after I asked advice on the Scquilters mailinglist. It's in the library catalogue and I have asked for it - hope I will have it soon!
I had a look at the book in the quiltshop this morning; it looked good and extremely useful, but it was very expensive, so I'll just wait for the library copy. It's quite cheap when you buy it from Amazon actually, but then it will probably take just as long to arrive here.

Linda this is beautiful. I love the fabrics you chose, the black and white set off by the red and the bit of gold too. A real treasure for my eyes to behold!
