Finish it up Friday

I finished my little 4 patch quilt the other day. As you know, I had a terrible time deciding on a border fabric. As I was putting some fabrics away, I spied another choice altogether. This I could be happy with, not too light and not too dark.

The backing fabric came from a FQ that my hubby surprised me with on one of his shopping trips.

I am pleased with this quilting choice also. I actually used a rather bright green thread but it blended well with all the scraps. It gives texture without competing with the piecing.

All in all, a happy little quilt!

    Turned out well! I especially like the way the border line appears and disappears, and the way the eye is drawn to the black and red diagonal. You created a lot of visual interest with a simple four-patch block.
