Finished, Finis, Done

Someone is trying to get in on the action...


Finished hand stitching the binding down last night....


 Sorry about the quality of the photo..it was still quite dark
inside when I made this photo....
I wasn't too sure of the second border as the
Penguins are large and don't show up
too well, but I liked the darker
blue and it continued the snowflakes
pattern that is on the lighter, first 
border...then I found this red with
snowflakes and decided it would be the
binding, pulling the red from the second border
and finishing with more snowflakes...


I chose this for the backing because I prefer
a lighter fabric which doesn't highlight my faults
in quilting.
Its a cute little quilt.
