Wow 2, wrapping it up



I am wrapping things up.


I did this in a bit of a rush but I needed to just do it.


I also need to stop doing the 'in the ditch' stitching for each section as I can baste it well enough without adding those extra lines which end up with double stitching.  I just fee motioned back and forth down each row of blocks.


I can't remember if I had chosen the binding fabric  but I don't know where it is if I did! lol  So I'm  auditioning this green.


The back looks pretty cool!




It is a lap sized quilt.  I would like it bound by next Wednesday.  I'm linking up to my fellow Canadians at The Needle and Thread Network.

Ohh, love it! That pop of aqua is fabulous and I think the green will work well for the sashing.
