On the Road to... Summer?

In February I started the "On the Road to Spring" quilt-a-long hosted by Randi.  Well, mine has turned into a "On the Road to Summer" quilt!  This weekend on our way to Traverse City, I was able to work on the binding and completed my second Spring to Finish quilt.


I like it!  It's pretty bright and cheerful!  Very spring/summery. 


I think the back is great.  The main panel is this fabulous print from Prints Charming that is uber soft.  That was actually one of the main reasons why I purchased the fabric in the first place.  Since it wasn't wide enough, I added some Moda Bella Solid in a borderline obnoxious pink.  It actually coordinates with the print really well!  I love it. 


As usual, the quilting is free motion quilting.  So easy and lovely.


I decided I liked the pink solid so much that I decided to bind the quilt with it too. 

All in all, I would say that it is a success!

Very cool quilt :) And the photo-shoot location is amazing - is that where you live? Do you make a special trip to photograph your quilts, or do you just walk out of the back door?

Cheers,
Christine

Great job! And I love it pictured with the dunes in the background!

Traverse City...sigh...is one of my all-time favorite places to visit. I'm jealous!

P.S. If you drive through Grayling, stop at The Ice House!
