Long Time Coming

Last April not long after I started quilting my friend Kate from Kate Conklin Designs posted this tutorial 
I loved it! I thought it looked simple enough and went off and bought 24 fat quarters.
It was really fun to make the quilt top. I added sashing around each square - cause I like it

I was happy with how the top turned out but was really scared of going any further as it was quite large.
Another friend of mine (also a Kate) really liked it and I promised it to her.
Well this last week I finally got the courage (and the cash) to finish it.

I worked quite hard on my binding and I am so happy :D with my corners

The quilting is just in the ditch but being such a large quilt it was a lot of work (very heavy)

I went with a plain back as opposed to piecing one as a thought the front had quite enough going on.

I really love the red binding it works well with both sides :)
As for Kate she has put it on her King size bed!!!!
I guess the lesson here is don't ask me for something you need quick it could take me over a year lol
