Sunshine Quilt Finished

I decided to give this quilt a sunny name because it was such a pain in the neck - I'm trying to stay positive. Four days later, I made it to the store for more fabric for a edge border. Yes, I paid 4.99 a yard for batiks.


Now the quilt was about 75" square and I needed to add a 4" border with an edge and binding to make it big enough to look good hanging over the bed.


This is it without the 4" border. It looks OK but not very generous.


The borders with the binding


Hangs much nicer


My attempt at humor - one square on point.

Wrapping it for Solstice (hence "Sunshine" quilt)
