Blazing Arrows swap quilt top completed

I am so excited about this (flimsy) finish and how stunning it looks.

I have just popped the black borders on today, and as I write this its laid out on my dining table ready to be pinned (my least favourite job)

I am giving this quilt to my girlfriend Deb for her 50th in July.  Deb loves loves cats, hence why I appliqued two cats on for her.  Deb moved into a new house about a year ago and has decorated her family room with a red sofa and black and white accessories which is why I picked this colourway for her.  I have purchased enough of the red to back it and also bind it with.

I would like to thank the following ladies who contributed to this quilt top.
TOP ROW (L-R) :Helen, Erin and Teresa
MIDDLE ROW: Brenda, Helen and Beatrice
BOTTOM ROW: Encara, Cathy A and Raelene

When the quilting and binding is complete I will pop a new pic on the blog, but I was just so excited to share it with you.
