Whatca Working on Wed

I am finishing the binding on this quilt today. My annual Jan quilting retreat is this weekend and I want it on my bed. For such a simple pattern I love how it turned out.
It was a challenge on a blog last May. We were supposed to make a block a day for 70 days. Of course I couldn't be happy with that. I made 2 blocks a day in the reverse of each other. These same fabrics are in the quilt I made for my SIL in Texas last year. This one is supposed to be for my brother. I just liked it so much when it was done that it's hard to part with. The gold tied it all together so nicely and made it look old. So of course I loved it.
This is the back. My friend quilted it for me in an all over meandering star pattern. It just finishes off the quilt nicely.

My DH got me 4 yes I said 4 of the Judy Condon books for Christmas. I had 3 already so that brings me up to date I think. I actually have 2 of Country on a Shoestring so I may regift one of those. He didn't see it on the shelf when he was looking to see what I had.
Be sure and visit Leslie's blog to see what others are working on.

It's so beautiful, Rhonda! I just love it and the idea of creating a block each day. We NEED to find time to stitch each day for good health!

Blessings, Lea
