My Creative Space...

I am barely making this post in time to be a part of My Creative Space. If you still haven't checked out the group it's really fun and a great way to find new blogs, which I really don't need to do but can't resist.
The reason I am behind is I was working my little fingers to the bone hand finishing the binding on my Project Modern Monochromatic Quilt and it's done!! 


 This might be a case of my liking the back more then the front but I am really happy with it! I wanted the blocks to have a random feel to them but they are actually the same four piece block turned with the striped squares cut into them. I have to show a picture of the binding.
 While I have had the cutting and machine sewing part of binding down for awhile I have received some good input from some veteran quilters on my hand finishing. No Rachel you didn't hurt my feelings and I hope you will be proud of my work thank you for the advice!
