Big Bold Finish!

While at the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo, I had some time to finish the binding on this quilt.  It was time well-spent.  I can finally say this one is done!  I added the label yesterday.

I think the vines that travel up the solid patches really bring this quilt to life.  I know not all quilting is meant to be seen, but I just love this quilting.
I will have to take another picture, or two to show the border quilting. I used several different designs in the quilting of this quilt.  The vines that travel up the solid blocks are just one.

I also used a flower design with tendrils in the print areas.  Even with this great thread (Fantastico from Superior Threads) it just disappears in the prints.
The inner border is filled with different sized bubbles/pebbling.  The outer-most border is all done with a straight ruler and is very simple.  I'll have to take a picture or two to show that.  All it needs now is a good run through the wash to give it that amazing texture that cotton batting provides.  I love a good finish.
