The Finished Granny Square Quilt!

I am SO excited to finally share my finished granny square quilt with you, it's been in the making for a long time! I actually completed it a couple weeks ago but only got round to photographing it today :) the weather has been awful recently so unfortunately I haven't got the best photo's to show you, but you get the idea ...
I peiced the back with a pink stripe by Sevenberry and a blue floral print by Moda's 30s PlayTime collection. I hand-stitched the binding on, and machine quilted some simple straight lines to bring out the granny sqaures :) I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and I can't wait to get it washed so it has that lovely crinkly look. Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments along the way, I don't think I could have finished it without all your kind comments! :D Right, now on to the next one!
Jessie, xo
