i just love you guys!!!:)

Square Dance is done!!! Hip Hip Hooray!! All my graduation quilts are done!! I'm going to have to get a giveaway together!!!:)
This is the back of square dance and as you can tell I used what I had. I didn't have to buy any fabric for this quilt!! It feels so good. But why do I still have four drawers of fabric (filled) and stacks of fabric on shelves??? I'm trying to make a dent.:)

I did the kind of binding that amandajean has done. I did color to color. It wasn't as bad as I thought and I got closer to the colors than I thought I would so over all I think I would try this method again.

Here's where you can see the three different colors of binding that I did to match the back. I have to say I'm really learning to love a white solid in a quilt!! I love how it makes the colors PUNCH!!!:) I also want to thank everyone for the encouraging comments about the wee play quilt. With every comment I got that said quilts are to be used and loved and they can be washed I got more and more confident!!! I guess since this is my blog I obviously talk about what I do but I was starting to feel like I am sooooooooo selfish because all I talk about is what I do. I feel a little funny about that at times. This is the me space I guess.:) I think that's why I take some time off at times.:) Hope you have a great day! We'll see you tomorrow!!

  4. I love it! I think I may have to use that pattern idea. I especially like that white boarder. And the different bindings - it makes the back look great and then that cool color ahnge on the front - so cool! Being still fairly new, is that an offical pattern or did you wing it?
