Auction Quilt Rap Up

Our auction was Saturday night and I have just now recovered. The making of the quilt moved along pretty quickly until Friday when I thought it would be a good idea to try hand finishing the binding for the first time. Well that was a crazy idea and at 12:30 AM I decided to get to bed and finish the next day before the auction started. After a busy morning of helping to set up the auction and attending Cecilia's first Birthday party. I started in on finishing the binding which took 2 1/2 more hours. To give you an idea if you are not a quilter I could have done this on the machine in 10 minutes! Needless to say I was very tired the night of but the event was a lot of fun and raised a lot of money for the school.
 
Here are a few photos of the quilt. I had to take the pictures very quickly as we were leaving for the auction so they are not my best work.

For the quilting I chose to quilt lines at random intervals but
then stitch in the ditch around the rectangles.
  My studio is now a wreck so it's clean up time and then on to the next project.
