the rescue

As predicted in this little post way back when, it has taken a loooong time to finish this one. In the end I spent a marathon day last Sunday completing the last of the quilting and then binding it. I've developed quite a nice callus on my left index finger that I should really work at maintaining -- maybe a New Year's promise to myself. The photos are harsh... I didn't have the chance to take them in natural light, but better bad pictures than none at all I suppose!

the front

the back 
(wow, the camera has a hard time figuring out what to do with this pattern!)

and a few details I quite like; 
the binding, for example, switches from green to yellow to match the background fabric 
(and, ahem, because there actually wasn't enough green left)

the quilting; 
I switched from traditional outlining style to some free form lines in the background between the fans.
I will definitely do more of this for the next project.

the label;
 (for an explanation of the quilt's name, see the link at the top of the this post) 
I really wish Beverly could have seen it.

Goodbye, little quilt, I'm going to miss you.
