The Jelly Roll 1600 Finish

I finished the quilting yesterday and made a run to the LQS to find some binding...

...there were several options but this one was the winner hands down!

The blue print has a yellow-green print with touches of purple and goes perfectly with all the wild colors in this bali pop assortment.

Like the thread, the binding fabric pulled all the colors together and I'm quite pleased with how this quilt has turned out.

The quilt is now in the wash and will go to it's new home this afternoon...  it's for my SIL's birthday, which is this coming week.  Yes!  I got it finished ahead of time... be impressed!

This is the penultimate quilt of my "everyone in my family is going to have a quilt" project.  I have just one more to go... for my youngest nephew.

While I was at the LQS, I also picked up a fat quarter of this fabric... don't know why.  It just appealed to me and made me smile...
