finish #5 for March....

I finished the binding last night while watching TV.  I really like this bright cheery quilt.  It is about 52" x 59".   I showed the backing fabrics a couple days ago, 3 strips of Kaffe fabrics with gold/orange in all of them.







In this close up you can see that even though I used a busy print for the binding, it reads as a solid from a distance.  If you go back a couple days you can see how I choose bindings.

I baked 2 batches of cookies and finished cleaning up the basement yesterday.  I'm expecting the art quilters group today.  It is going to be cold but no snow storm.

Great colors! It is so satisfying to see rich, sparkling colors in a quilt. So many different fabrics, yet it reads as a unified whole.

I think this quilt is going to be my muse for my growing collection of Kaffe fabrics. It is absolutely calling my name!

I too love this quilt. It looks like a precise basket weave on screen. And as always, a "Wandaful" finish.

I really like that quilt. It reminds me of slices of layer cakes. Is there a pattern? I don't remember if you said earlier. I guess I could just troll back and see. Anyway, I do like it. A lot!

Very, Very nice…..like your choice for binding and I agree….the blocks remind me of a layer cake.
Thank you for sharing! #5.

You can not tell the binding is busy! It frames the quilt nicely.
