A Finish!

It seems like ages since I've had a completed quilt but I'm SO pleased with the way it came out.  We've been sleeping under it for a about a week without the binding, so it was time to make one last push and get it done.

I finished sewing the binding on Sunday afternoon - on my 50th birthday no less!  I've been calling this quilt "Color Block" which admittedly is pretty boring.  Maybe I should change it to "That 70's Quilt"?  What do you think?

The idea to rename the quilt popped in my brain when I came across the picture above when I was downloading my quilt pics onto Flickr from my computer. It's something my 10 year old daughter created one day when she was bored.

Some details:
Assorted Kona cotton solids
Assorted prints:  Anna Maria Horner, Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry, Jane Sassaman, etc.
Backing is a Valori Wells print
Machine pieced and quilted by me
Machine quilting with Coats & Clarks variegated thread ("autumn")
Free-form flowers stitched in the squares, feather in border

I apologize for the crappy pictures.  First of all, I lost my camera and have had to use a very old Powershot.  And this is a BIG quilt -- too large to be photographed in it's entirety in my house.  Once it stops raining and things dry out a bit, I'll attempt a photo shoot outdoors.
