California finish

With new thread in hand...although different new thread...because the store was sold out of the kind that I started with !!! Of course!!

Anyway..it is finished..

The FMQ went smoothly..(apart from running out of thread!!)

In the borders I continued the flowers but added a loop between each one to spread them out a bit. It seems to take me at least 2 sides of the quilt to finally get the spacing right !! I tried drawing them on first, but I have trouble staying with the lines!

The back is such a fun print...found on the 1/2 price wall at my local quilt shop..Periwinkle Quilting.
It is called Arianna by Jennifer Young.


And also got this great binding there...

I love it! It is such a great colour and really finishes off this fun quilt perfectly.

Of course ..I added a label...I had these printed at Spoonflower, and I just add the name of the quilt and the date..

So I get to link up again to TGIFF!! Go check out all the great finishes over there!
