"My Favourite Things" .... Finished

I'm happy to share my finished (yes ... finished!!) "My Favourite Things" quilt!!   This has just been such a joy to stitch and I finally stitched the last part of the binding on this morning at Needlework!! 


I bound it in a red similar to the red I had used for little bits of applique throughout the quilt!!  The quilting was beautifully completed by my friend Jenny (who, by the way, is an absolute whiz with quilting!) and I'm really happy with the end result!!


I have finished it off with one of Anni's labels and am happy to put the finishing date as August 2012!   This is one happy little camper here!!   Thanks Chooky for the inspiration and all the ladies who are taking part in the Stitch A Long!  It is such fun to see everyone's posts and progress!  May this spur you on to finish yours off ... the feeling is amazing!!     Happy stitching everyone ... and looking forward to the next challenge you have for us Chooky!!

That looks great! I like that you used blue for the backing since the quilt top is such a light color overall. I had been wondering what to use for backing. I love the label, too.
