A finish!!!

I finally finished my Hands All Around quilt. I was hoping to have it finished by the end of May so I would have something to show to the "Spring to Finish" group that Jacquie was holding at I didn't make the deadline, but I am content because I finished it after almost 2 years of just sitting around!

I used Amandajean's binding tutorial to make my binding and I have to say that I absolutely love it. It was so easy to make, and fun too!

Isn't pretty all rolled up? I just used scraps from my batiks to match the batiks in the quilt blocks themselves. Looks like candy!

Here it is going on to my quilt.

Here is a close-up of the binding after I finished it.

And here my quilt is all done! Sorry for the poor light, we are having an over-abundance of rain lately.

On a sad note, our mama hummingbird abandoned her nest about 3 days after I posted about it. We had the most horrendous thunderstorms during that time and I have to wonder if that had anything to do with it. We have yet to take it down, but we will soon. I will take photos of the inside of the nest so we can all see if there were eggs in there or not.

Have a great day!
