I love a good finish!

I was really happy to get Miss Tess off of the machine on Sunday. Since I didn't have much time to quilt last week, it seemed like it had been on the machine forever.
I used Leafage to quilt it, which is my favorite panto! I found a striped fabric that looks like fabric in stripes for the binding. I thought that splash of color would look nice with the dark blue border.
Here I am, trying to sew the binding on....a queen is heavy enough to begin with without Smokey helping. They both kept trying to sit on it while I tried to sew the binding on!

I took it outside yesterday to take some pictures. That old swingset frame has its uses.

Folded and ready to go to the store to be hung on display!

A pretty pantograph for this colorful design, a perfect binding choice, and a great finish, Jean. Well done.

Cute 'quilt' weight. Love those polka dots, too.
