Fractured Finished

I did the finishing touches on my " Fractured" quilt yesterday....and took it outside into the snow for a photo shoot :)

The wind was kind enough to flip up the corner just enough to see the label!

The backing is a fun print..I think looks a bit like little robots..

and a couple of leftover blocks..

I used a batik for the binding that I really like. It has lots of different colours so blends and highlights at the same time...

I did have some trouble with some of the points matching up, but in the end I dont think that it matters a lot. I will pretend that I meant it to look like that! OK?

This was inspired by Melissa over at Happy Quilting, and she has a great tutorial for this one. This is one of the very first blogs that I started following...such great stuff here....you should check it out!

So now linking up to TGIFF today over at Quokka Quilts..


and Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts!
