First is a little 12 inch mini for Easter. My neighbor, who is a lovely Greek lady (and makes the best home made baklava), celebrated Orthodox Easter this weekend. So I think I can still say I finished in time for Easter. I just had to hand sew the binding in the car on the way to the lake.

The other quilt that had binding hand stitched on this week was a UFO! I started Shoo Fly Pie in April 2012 as part of a color challenge. We were challenged to make a quilt from colors from a posted photograph, colors we would not normally use together.
I had a very busy small print floral that I loved, but it never was right for anything! It had all the right colors in it for this challenge. It was still too busy for me at first, and I started and stopped, ripped out and re-sewed again to make half dark and half light. I was stuck for a while until my sister suggested adding the navy blue blocks to anchor the colors. It was just what this quilt needed! Finally, this is the result.
