I managed to finish mine up over the weekend and took a couple of photos of it today. It has been such a rainy season here so I haven't had a chance to get an outdoor shot until today.
After adding an additional 6 inch strip border, the quilt finished at 84" square. The quilting is fairly dense since that last border has a lot of bias edged strips when sewn together.
I love seeing all the texture after quilting.
The backing had the perfect colors.
Blue seemed like the best option when it came to binding.
It was a great pattern this year. I can hardly wait for the next clue in about nine months.
It has been really cold here lately. We've had very rare freeze warnings. I'm finding myself covering my tender plants each night. Where is spring? This morning we awoke to another day of frosty lawns and ice in the rain puddles from yesterday. Those poinsettias are frost damaged today and will be gone tomorrow.
