Finally a finished Quilt!!

This quilt has been about 18 months in the making.  Started off making a table topper in the same colours - Moda Beach house (??) and I liked it so much decided that I'd like a quilt.  I used a charm pack and a layer cake.  To make the quilt bigger I added in the sashings and borders.  It was a fun quilt to make and quite easy but it sat for so long waiting for the borders to go on.  Finally on the weekend, I completed the borders and yesterday quilted it.  Last night was spent doing the binding.  I only quilted in the ditch - simple enough and I thought with the colours it didn't need a lot more.  I intended to cut the binding on the bias for a slightly different look against the border - but it just didn't work out and I knew that I was going to waste the fabric if I kept going, so it's a traditional binding.

I can finally put something on Sew it's Finished blog!!  Yeh!!
