Finally finished the binding. I sat around asking why it took me so long!

Free project download from FQ Shop. I was not sure I would like the color combo I chose for this quilt, and BOY was I RIGHT! I started with two charm packs (Fig and Plum, I think) and I decided to use two solids. Several prints had this pretty purple, so I went with that and I also went with white. I like the style of the pattern and I like the blocks individually, but combined it's a nightmare. That maroon in the cp, I'm not sure who thought it was a good combo.
This one is a definite give away or donation quilt.

I completed my previous project (Portal). It is now off to the quilter (thanks Pat)! I have started another project. It's a simple free pattern from FatQuarter Shop, called Charm Pack Cherry Quilt. I am using 2 Fig and Plum printed charm packs and 2 different solids (pattern calls for 1 solid so hopefully it looks scrappy and not ruined)....we shall see.

Made strides on the work in progress. I finally finished the quilt top. It looks a little plain to me, but it turned out exactly as I pictured in my head. My binding strips have been cut, now all I have to do is piece the backing. I chose a light blue flannel. That flannel back should make it nice an cozy. I think I will call it Portal, it kind of reminds me of a doorway.
