It turned out 72" long, 14" wide. I am so pleased with how it turned out. And I love the Metro Living rings as the binding. here are a couple close-up shots so you can see the binding and quilting better.
I decided to just do a random strip backing. Each fabric is showcased at least once, with a few duplicates. It's a little crooked, but it's hard to tell from a distance ::wink::
Action shots guest starring my mom's dining room table (since mine looks like a fabric store explosion at the moment!)
So to celebrate my first sizable finish. I'm having a little giveaway. I grabbed my scraps and made a cute herringbone hot pad complete with insulbrite batting so it's safe to use with hot things; it's 10x10" a great size for Dutch Ovens :)
I backed it with the turquoise bouquet print and it's bound in the same Metro Living rings. The winner will get the hot pad, and a little surprise.
Linking up with TGIFF hosted @ Bedtime Quilting this week. Thanks for celebrating my first finish with me!
