Quilting Project #1 Complete

I was pretty excited to finish this the other night. I became so engrossed in it that I stayed up until 2 am and managed to wash and dry too! I suppose that's the rewarding part - to see if all fluffy and warm right out of the dryer : ) I didn't follow a pattern ~ just instinct. I made the binding out of the same cream cotton as the back. I machine stitched a cute leaf pattern throughout which I really like a lot.
I also finished up the top of the big Summer quilt too : ) That's Big Red holding it up for all to see! His wing span is pretty impressive!
When I was falling asleep last night I imagined a light blue backing with white clouds sewn on to it ~ I guess whenever I think of the word dream I think of clouds! I'm hoping to head to the fabric store tomorrow to get the stuff for the back. I really love the soft colors ~ like an Easter basket : )
