Update: This quilt won a 2nd place ribbon at our county fair!!!
Here's my String of Pearls.
Here's the pieced back. I sooooo wish I had just a little more of that brown on the bottom, but whatever... I'll piece it and go. I had to use the three extra blocks too! According to Fons & Porter's tips I should have used a single fabric back if I was going to enter it into a contest. We'll see. I think the big pattern on the brown fabric on the bottom turned out nice and straight.
Here's my label that is on the bottom right corner. (It's just a tidge crooked...)
I so like the orange binding. I HATE doing binding by hand, but this quilt is special since it will be judged. It's the same orange as the three squares on the front. The fabrics on the front (except for the orange) were left overs from the Drunkard's Path baby quilt that I did earlier for my son's speech therapist.
I'm also happy to link up with Richard and Tanya Quilts for the Link-A-Finish FRIDAY.
I'm also showing off this finish by joining the linky parties on:Can I get a Whoop Whoop?
Finish It Up Friday
Mmmm... this one looks good:
