Pink Askew Squares Finished.

I finished sewing the binding down on this little quilt the other night while watching a certain bike race on telly. :) It measures 29 by 37 inches. Grace had to kneel to hide herself in this photo.

I backed it in an old print of ummm, I don't know! I have had this meter of fabric sitting in the backing box for ages! Someone famous like Valori Wells or Anna Maria Horner. I threw the selvage out. The business of the print did seem to match the business of the squares on the front. I looooove the binding! That was one of those prints you see and love but never know what to sew with it.

Just straight up and down quilting here. My favorite quilting technique at the moment.

Grace getting restless now and about to wave the quilt around like a superhero cape. Time for the photo shot to wrap up then!

I love it! I had to laugh at myself though when you said your daughter was hiding behind it on her knees -- I totally thought it was lap-sized in my mind and did a total double-take and *then* noticed her shadow and really paid attention to the size.

Love the pink quilt, how far apart are your quilting lines? Do you mark your top? I love the look of it.

That's so pretty! I just came into possession of a pile of pretty orange/melon prints, and this might be just the perfect quilt to showcase them! Thanks for the idea!!
