Wow, I wasn't sure I was going to make today's deadline with this quilt! Who knew you could baste, quilt, and bind a quilt in a day? Well, not technically a day. I basted and started the quilting last night.
This morning, someone was already trying to take posession of the quilt, before I'd even finished the quilting!
I was going to quilt it with straight lines following the diagonal of the blocks, but I really see the diagonal along the purple blocks when I looked at it. So, I did (kind of wonky) straight lines on each side of the block seams and in the middle of each block. I wish the stripey binding stood out a bit more. It's a great stripe from Prints Charming that I've had for a while.
Here's a close up of the backing fabric and a peek at the binding.
Oh, and I can actually put the lids on all my scrap bins now! Whoo hoo!
