A Very Quick Finish!

finished quilt
Wow...sewing the binding on didn't take long at all! I really thought it would take a couple evenings but it wasn't so. My husband and I settled in to watch The Battle of The Bulge on TCM last night and while we watched I sewed the binding on. For the binding I chose a darker brown fabric with a very low contrast print and it is the perfect finishing touch.

It is a small quilt and it finished at 47" x 53"which I think is a good size for a young child. Even though the prints are not really juvenile I still think a child would love to receive it.

All of the fabric used in this quilt came from stash and I pieced the batting from leftover hunks and chunks and that makes me happy!

I wasn't too sure about the backing fabric I used but I think it works just fine. The front of the quilt is a bit busy but you can really see the quilting design on the back.

 I will take it with me to my Guild meeting on Wednesday for donation to our Outreach Program.

One quilt down and 9,999 to go! I have a lot of fabric to get through. ;)

Well done on your finish. For some reason it has been so long since I have visited your blog. Just wondering how your Seven Sisters quilts are going. Where are you up to
