I'm finally getting around to posting the photos of my finished quilt. I really meant to do this sooner, but you know how life can get in the way. I was so busy last week that I didn't know if I was coming or going!

60.5" x 79.5"
So, finally, here is my crumb quilt "Happy Scraps" for it's official photo.
And here is the back of the quilt. I think I over-estimated how much backing I needed because most of the third strip of the log cabin on each side has been trimmed off. But better than too small! I'm still not real enamored of this backing. I love the panel I used in the middle but I wish I had used dark fabric all the way around it. Oh well - Finished is better than Perfect!
Here is a block that shows off the quilting in the sashing that Shari, my long-arm quilter, did. She used a multi-colored thread, which I love.
Of course Corvettes and rubber duckies go together! *grin*
And here is the border quilting and the binding. The border fabric has every color except blue. There's a lot of the light blue/turquoise in the quilt, so that's the color I picked for the binding. I usually prefer a dark binding on my quilts, but this just seemed right for this quilt.
So, now I'm picking out fabrics and packing my gear for my class with Gwen Marston on Small Quilts this Saturday. I'm so excited about this class I can hardly stand it! Nifty Quilts and Buffy of Rebels blog are going to be there too! Whoo hoo! I'll see you next week with a report on the class..
