A Finish

Yesterday, I finished this little quilt; it measures 39 x 48. Gwen, one of the Basement Divas made the top from a set of my leftover blocks that she received as a prize at the Jelly Roll Race. She offered to finish it for me but I felt a bit guilty that she had taken the time to make the top from what was intended to be a whimsical, non serious prize and decided to finish it myself.
I bought some backing last week and I layered it up yesterday morning and finished it today.  I quilted it with the Bernina # 4 stitch with blue thread in the sashing and on the binding and with multicolor thread that went across the blocks corner to corner and through the sashing junctions.
