Friday finishes

It is done! finished ! washed and dried! wrapped and ready!

I cut this one close! I needed it finished by today to take on the plane with me, to my friends in Calgary. Their daughter just got married, and I wanted to take a quilt for a wedding gift. Of course I would have been done long ago except.....the one I started for them...I decided to keep for myself!! It was fabric that I loved, and just couldn't give it away..

So I quickly had to start....and finish...something new!
The fabric is "Etchings" by Moda. I am not sure what the dark navy fabric is, I just liked how it contrasted..

The backing is "Wordplay" by Benartex.

And the binding is my effort to get a bit more whimsical ....dots!

It finished at 64" x 72". ..lots of FMQ practice!!
