A Fabulous Finish!

I finished this on the weekend. I took the binding to my real life quilting group on Saturday and spent the time sewing the binding on. Then on Sunday I got to sit and sew the binding down into place with the aid of my new fancy sewing lamp I got for Mother's Day!

 
I am so pleased with the quilting on this. Here is part of the backing.

 
Even though its quite heavily quilted, it still drapes nicely.

In hindsight I could have rearranged those lighter squares in the bottom right and mised them up in the top right.... Hindsight hey?

And another shot of the back.... It's in Perth now. The lady it is for, it's her birthday tomorrow and she has her third dose of chemo on the same day. That suxs! I wrapped it up and said you can't open it till Wednesday, tomorrow.... hope she likes it!

I think it's beautifully green and I love spiral quilting! I am sure that the recipient will love it.

I love the quilting too! Can you give a beginning quilter (experienced in the piecing) the How To?

Honk if you love flying geese!
I'm at it again with the flying geese! And this cute quilt is called Gosling-Go-Round. I'm happy to be able to finally share this quilt with you, thanks to the kind ladies at McCall's Quilting.
