March UFO


My March UFO is complete!  All the way down to hand-stitching the binding.  After 3 years sitting as little wedges in a box, I'm happy to have this one off my conscience.

The stack and whack circles are made from a striped fabric.  I really like the way they turned out, although my stripes don't always match up exactly. 

I quilted this with a spiral in the blocks, and then echo quilting in the background and borders.  This isn't a great picture, but it shows some of the quilting lines.

 I love the border fabric, which blog readers helped me pick out.  And the backing is similar to, but not exactly, the orange in the background.  I also included 2 spare blocks in the backing, just because I could.  If you click on this picture, you can see the quilting.
