And it's finished!!

Just minutes ago I put the final stitches in the binding of my Turning Four-T quilt. I am just in love with this quilt! I think it's my new all-time favourite.

I know the picture I'm sharing is not great (and that's largely because I'm not a good photographer) but also because I wanted you to be able to see the effect of the quilting with the natural light running across the quilt.

The binding I selected was a navy stripe fabric from my stash - it's a Jo Morton print. And though it doesn't appear anywhere else in the quilt, it looks really wonderful curving around the edge.

Now I can begin working on the directions and some 'in progress' pieces for the magazine. But more importantly, today I will work on some more Nearly Insane blocks, and start cutting fabric for the Kaffe project I've been dying to start. Happy days!! :-)
