Well, I finished this quilt top. I am really happy with how it came out. The photo above was shot just after I took it out of the dryer. It has that crinkly, comfy quilt look now. This quilt was made from Mary Engelbreit for Moda “A Recipe for Friendship”. The pattern is from Strip Crazy by Suzanne McNeill and is called “Home in the City”. See the house in the center? Yesterday after I had made the “quilt sandwich” and hand tied the entire quilt, I realized that I didn’t have any fabric for the binding. So, I folded up the almost finished quilt and drove down to my favorite quilt shop, which I have mentioned many times, High County Quilts. It took me quite a while to find the perfect binding fabric, and then there it was, on the floor with a few Christmas Mary Engelbreit fabrics…the cherries! I was so happy, because the colors of this quilt are not easy to match and I wanted the perfect border. So 1/2 yard later, I was back home cutting 2 1/2 strips to sew together to make a binding, and this is the finshed result. The backing is a perfect green match from Kona called “spring”. Here is a close up of the binding and backing. Hugs Erica

Erica, I really like the quilt. It is beautiful, and I really like the binding as well as the beautiful color green backing. Glad you could find the material for the binding, as it matches prefectly. Great job again. Congratulations on another beautiful quilt.
Another beautiful Quilt!! You did a great job. I too love the binding and the backing. I bought that same Jelly Roll of fabric but couldn’t come up with any pattern to use it. Love what you did!!!
