Finish It Up Tuesday?

Yes! I actually have a finish! I set my shoo fly blocks together and quilted it on my Pfaff.

Rotary cutting is out for me right now, but Mr. Wonderful came to my rescue when it came time to square things up.

I decided the binding had to come from leftovers. I initially thought red, but maybe the pink was better?

I ended up going with this taupe piece. It isn’t old or retro, but it didn’t scream for attention either.

And here it is!

It’s just big enough for this doll bed.

My hand is getting better every day and today, I get my stitches out. Progress! Thanks to all who have asked.

Have a great day!
