String pieced done.............

I originally thought I would finish this wallhanging for my solo show in North Carolina in June but when I realized how much quilting I needed to put into it, I didn't have the energy to get it done in time.  My daughter and I both thought the layout made it look like the glass pieces in a Kaleidoscope so that is what we named it.  The binding is done and I just have to sew down the bottom of the hanging sleeve and it will be finished.
