Goal Accomplished!

It was a hard push to the end of the month to finish this quilt. It was an ambitious goal to start with but am so delighted that this quilt is now finished! 
Here it is hanging on my friend's clothesline because I finished the binding while visiting her. It is a heavy quilt using up almost 5 bobbins of thread!
On Ringo Lake




This is the Bonnie Hunter Quiltville mystery called "On Ringo Lake" started in November 2017. I'm very happy with how the design turned out since I used the blocks that were designated for the sashing as the border blocks instead. I love that zigzag border!
Finished size: 62.5" x 80"
Linking up to One Monthly Goal and Favorite Finish!

Congrats on the finish Kathy. It's beautiful. My sister-in-law usually does Bonnie's QALs and I'm pretty sure she did Ringo Lake too.

Wow! That is beautiful & when I first looked at it I didn't recognize it as On Ringo Lake at all. Fantastic adaptation, love the zigzag border.

Congrats on the great finish! Glad you only broke 2 needles, and didn't have one of those needles 'get' you.
