Friendship Chain is finished

My goal for the end of last year was to get this quilt finished. One of my goals for this month is to get the pattern finished and released. I can now say that the writing is finished. It will go off to my editor next week to check for errors and clarity. I hope to have it released by the end of January.
It is completely hand pieced using English Paper Piecing. Each of the chains is a different fabric, all of which came from my stash. I quilted it on my long arm machine.I used a diagonal print for the binding which picks up the fabric colours from inside the quilt and gives it a definite stop point on the edge of the quilt.
I will announce here on the blog when the papers and pattern are available. I have had a couple of comments asking for notification from people who are no reply bloggers, which means I have no way to get in touch with them, other than here on the blog.
I’m linking to Lorna’s Let’s Bee Social.
