Overs & Unders Over and Out!

It's finished!

Overs and Unders 004

Yesterday I showed you the quilt top of Kim Brackett's Overs and Unders pattern I'm making for mum's 70th birthday. 

I had a productive day yesterday and got this lap size quilt quilted and bound.

Finished size 60" x 60"
I decided to free motion the quilt, playing it safe with a large organic stipple!  I was going to add some applique flowers to the star centres, but now that I see the quilting through them, I think it would be too fussy.

I machine sewed the binding down for speed, as I've still loads to do before our exhibition on 9/11.

All I need is a label for this quilt and it's another tick off my humongous list! Fingers crossed mum will like it when she gets it in a couple of weeks time.
