Another Finish

I know it takes longer, but I find it so satisfying sitting and doing the hand quilting on these small quilts.  It just seems to go with the feel of the fabric,
Once the hand quilting was done, the binding was added, and hand finished.  Then it's ready for washing and drying.  It then gets that lovely lived in, crinkled look.

As I expected, it's perfect for the computer table, and gives me a lovely surprise every time I sit down. 
I wasn't so sure of this when I had it laid out on the floor ready to piece, but having seen it draped over the back of the settee in one piece, I really like it now.

As a bonus, I got three more crumb blocks.  Still quite a way before I get enough for a decent sized quilt.
