I'm done with my quilt! Well, with my first one. I've got another one half done, but this was my first quilt. I've had it quilted for months, but never did bind it off. I finally went over to a girlfriends house so she could show me how to do it. How cute is this?! First of all, can you tell what it is? Shelby says it looks like a bookshelf, but it is supposed to be a tree. An interpretation of a tree, anyway. I love it! Plus, there are no curves or anything, making it perfect for a first timer. All of the leaves are a different fabric, all different shades of green with various flowers/birds/leaves on them. I love that it has such a "scrappy" feel to it. I made my own binding using leftover scraps of all different patterns and lengths. I really think it adds to the "whimsy" of the quilt. The only pic you can really see that in is the last one. All told, I'm pretty proud of myself, and this is quickly becoming a bit of an addiction. I can't wait to get my next one finished!
