Christmas Random Plank

It was nice to have something easy and creative to do during the hot weather of the last few days. I watched a lot of tennis while pinning the binding to the Christmas Random Plank quilt. Since this quilt is going to live on my dining room table during the Holiday season, I didn't want to spend a lot of money of a fancy fabric for the backing, so I bought a cute holiday fabric that was marked down after the holidays.

 After pinning and pinning and pinning, I selected a thread color and starting sewing the binding down.
After a trip through the washer and dryer, it's finished.

 (I have to work on getting better "beauty shots" for my quilts.)
Here's the whole thing spread out on the driveway and I think it looks pretty good!

Yes and it will look even better once Millie has dropped her fur all over it! LOL

That is a cheery and fun quilt. I'm with you on the 'beauty shots' of quilts - it's hard to find a good place to show them off.
