A Finish!

I got the binding sewn down a few days ago. I love that it is finished but I really wish I would have re-thought the red sashing. The stitching was so fun and easy that I may have to make it again to get it right.

Happy Stitching!!!

Love yours!! Great minds think alike on the fabric choice!! I too am going to do the light blue as the inner border and will choose a lighter green from the range for the bigger border. The stitching was simple and fun wasn't it!! Great work!, Susie
