Stack'N'Whack


I finished this today, almost melted with it on my lap while I did the hand sewing on the binding. It didn't help that when the cats saw me they thought it was a nice place to curl up and have a nice nap. I don't think it is possible to bind a quilt without a cat "helping". Here is the back.
This will most likely be a Christmas gift for a friend, she has wanted a quilt since I stared quilting, this is the first one that the colours say her to me.

That's a fantastic quilt and love the way you finished the back. We tend to ignore the back and I think it's great when something different is added.
