A Quilty Finish!

I guess this Single Girl was never going to take long to finish, considering she is only little.


She was made to hang on my wall above a long lounge, which is why she is long and skinny!


Now that she is done, the mismatched red polka dots don't bother me at all.


The straight line quilting was really addictive, fun to do!


...it stands out well on the back (hanging sleeve stitched on all ready to go!)...


The backing fabric is the gorgeous Michael Miller Eiffel Tower.


A happy fabric binding...


I am very pleased with this little quilt and it was great to quilt along with so many others over at the
flickr support group.
