I spent the whole day yesterday in my craft area getting this baby finished. Then I spent the whole evening hand sewing the binding on. It turned out amazingly. The colors were just the perfect pick me up on such a cold, dreary day. I wasn’t sure about the brightness of the pink on the back, but now that it is finished I love it. I also pieced the back with the leftover scraps from the front. It breaks up the pink nicely. I quilted it simply by just following the piecing lines on the front where I sewed each of the strips together. The border is fabulous. It reminds me of striped beach umbrellas from vintage postcards.
