"Sweet Nostalgia" - The Finish

I had hoped to have the top quilted before the "reveal", but I'm sorry I couldn't manage it. I will post a photo when it is quilted.
I have used Prairie Points to finish the edges of my quilt, and normally, they are not added until the top has been quilted, but I wanted you to see the effect. The Prairie Point edging is optional, and some of you may prefer to just add a binding.
Here are the links to download the Finishing Instructions for the "Sweet Nostalgia" B.O.M. from either Scribd or 4Shared. I will leave the instruction available for download until November 15th, when the last of the blocks is removed.
Please remember, each block is available as a free download for 3 months, after which it will be available to purchase. If you have missed any of the blocks and wish to purchase them, just send me an email. The link to my email is on the left hand side of the screen, or in my profile.
I hope you have enjoyed stitching these blocks along with me, and for those of you who haven't had a chance to get started on them yet, I hope you will share your photos with us later. Don't forget to check out the photos in the "Sweet Nostalgia" Flickr group.
And for those of you still looking for the Cosmo embroidery threads I just learned that Super Buzzy is now carrying the full line.

Stay tuned for my next B.O.M.
Bye for now.

Bye for now.

Oh Dorothy what a perfect way to finish this quilt! I love the squares on point, and the prairie points - I've never done them but for this I will try! Thank you SO much for this absolutely darling quilt!

Dear Dorothy, I love love love how you finished this quilt .. it's just how I imagined it - not too heavy and just busy enough. I've been downloading the patterns for my mom - I think the project is next on her list.

Thanks Dorothy - what a perfect way to finish this quilt. There are going to be a few challenges for me to learn how to do the borders and the prairie points. It will all be part of the fun!
How is miss Daisy's recuperation?

This is such a sweet quilt, no pun intended. I love the way you set the embroideries with the little squares on point and the prairie points finish the quilt with a nice statement. Thank you for creating the embroideries and sharing them.
