I put the last hand stitches in the binding while I watched TV last night.  No matter how many photos I take of this quilt, they all have a blue cast which I tried to correct in my photo editing program.  It really is prettier than it looks here.
The color is truer in this photo and the next one which show the 2 border fabrics with the binding.
I spent 3 hours yesterday going through 'stuff' while cleaning out the corner of my bedroom so my plumbing and heating guy could come back and bleed the water line in my baseboard heater.  My bedroom and one section in the dining room weren't getting any heat.  I hope 3rd time is a charm, once when I got the new pump a year ago, next time when I had the new boiler installed in April, and now to clear out the air that all settled in the area the farthest point from the boiler.

Ah yes, those detail shots give me an idea of how this must look - just lovely!

Good luck with the heating system.

Unfortunately my "stuff" corner in my bedroom is a CLOSET with a door. *sigh* I have a feeling all the "stuff" would just be moved around in there. We all need a "stuff" place (like a "stuff" drawer) don't we?

I think the Christmas quilt looks great.

I hope this is the last time that you have to have them out on the heater. I hate moving my piles!!

This is a beautiful Christmas quilt. And the binding is just perfect...you always have just the right fabric. I have so many wonderful Christmas fabrics, and someday I would like to make a quilt like this!

Your photo came through just beautiful.... and to think it is even prettier in reality yet, makes me smile. Wanda, it is still Christmas Festival to me. So full of motion and fabrics that sing.

You finished it with perfection !

p.s. we have the same heating system, and I can relate. I am fortunate to have my husband take care of it.

That's a nice quilt, and you put it together so quickly, too ! I especially like the binding that you chose.

It is a beautiful quilt, and yes, I can see the colors much better in the close up shots. I LIKE it!

The quilt looks wonderful. The close up shots really show what neat fabrics that you chose. Hope you got your lines bled and that everything is working well.
