Cotton Blossoms Quilt

Just a little 8'' block sampler, this is the back with the sun shining through, I think it looks like stained glass.
Machine pieced and quilted in three sections.

My quilt measures 52"x62", it went together very fast!

My little ball player peeking around the corner!
I pieced the binding and hand stitched it on the front because I like to see the stitches and I enjoy looking at the fabrics close up while I stitch.

I used two different fabrics on the back.

And a coin strip, these fabrics are so nice to look at!

I had some vintage orange cotton ric-rac so I stitched it down the middle of my "cover the seams" binding strips.

One Charm Pack and a Jelly Roll of Moda's "Cotton Blossoms" by Bonnie and Camille, so everything matches ~~~ Yea!!

My girl who loves to play ball twice a day everyday, rain, snow, sleet or hail..... oh and I could never throw a ball that far, I have to use a tennis racket.
