It's DONE!!!!

I finally finished hand stitching the binding and I am soooo very happy to be done with this quilt!
Here is the front:

...and here is the pieced back which I am so in love with!!!

I used the pattern by Elizabeth Hartman called "Fenced In" from her book The Practical Guide to Patchwork which I won back in November
I was so excited to win and even more excited to see a project (actually quite a few) which didn't scare a novice quilter like me! I haven't measured it but it fits perfectly on my full size bed!

Up next...a hippie quilt for my momma!

Binding Time

My week last week started out like this:

It was such a beautiful day yesterday I took my quilt outside to sew on the binding in the sun. I have to say I really enjoyed that! Soaking up the sun under a new (almost done) quilt!
