Anyway, I got on with it and, by yesterday evening, it was ready for me to hand-sew the binding to the back. I thought it looked really good all folded and waiting to be sewn so I took a photo of it that way. As you do. Or at least you do when you're a blogger! LOL
I asked Joanna to help me take photos of it in all its glory this morning so here it is.
She insisted I took another photo as she hadn't been smiling in the first one. You can see her smiling in this one, can't you??
And here's the perfect fleece which I admit I bought for the back. I didn't want to have to buy a new piece of fleece but none of the fleece blankets I had were big enough. When I saw this spotty fleece, I knew I just had to buy it. It's just so perfect for this quilt!
I love everything about this quilt - the spotty fabrics in the big squares, the navy and white making it all pop, the orange spotty I used for the binding and the spotty fleece on the back. I had thought about doing fancy round quilting - circles or a spiral - but I actually think the diagonal lines set the whole thing off perfectly. I LOVE it! :o)
