Final finish for 2011

I know...I know...it is already 2012...I am just a little slow!!
This is Paris finished !! Even the hand stitched binding!

Fabric is "Etchings" by Moda. Not sure about the red and black border/backing...from my stash!

For the back, I wanted to feature one of the Etching prints that has hand writing on it. sorry, it is hard to see the writing under the quilting!

I reminded me of a letter, so I thought a couple of larger pieces would look like a letter on the back!

I was running short of backing fabric, so this is actually bits and pieces pulled together to make it big enough.

I finished about 90" square. I plan to use it in the guest room at our cabin.
