A speck of quilting







Before Christmas I finished up the quilting on my Speck.





Just some quilting in the ditch to keep it simple.






I mixed a few mini-charms for this one.





My favorite part has to be the striped binding.

I worked hard to get the stripes to match up all the way around.

I would do something like that.




I do like the backing too.

When the backing, the binding, and the top work perfectly together it makes me happy!

There is nothing better than striped binding--I just love it. Wonderful & fun schnibble. Are you keeping it out longer or putting it away until next year?
