Wildflower quilt COMPLETE!

This one has been fun to work on the entire time. It just came together so easily. Sure, points don't match and such as that but creatively, I never hit a wall.
 If you have been following along, you know this quilt used to have borders. Once I got it backed and started to quilt it, I decided the wide and pieced borders were too much. I sliced it down to a 1 1/2 inch border and I'm much happier with it. It is "organically" quilted in the ditch with a variegated thread.

 The back is pieced from an extra square (bordered the way the quilt originally way) with the bluebonnet print from the same Moda line and a "Quilt Across Texas" print that I fell in love with at first sight.

 Hey, I even remembered to use a label!

 I like the look of quilts in trees...if only my grass would grow.

Close up of the binding. A snazzy black and white print from my stash.

This quilt is in the mail to a friend who has NO IDEA it's about to show up on her doorstep. I can hardly wait to see her reaction.
