Look What I Finished…Finally

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.

Fabric: Verna by Kate Spain for Moda jelly roll, Kona cotton in white , Kona cotton in candy pink (backing and binding)
