Tulip Time 2010 + Finish #1

This weekend my grandma, mom, cousin and I made our way to Holland, Mi for the annual Tulip Time Festival.  It was beautiful and we had a really nice time.  Here are a few photos.  If you want to see more, you should check out my flickr page.  It is full of the cliche close up flower shots that I can't seem to get enough of this spring.

In the car I was able to finish up the binding on my Hunky Dory quilt.  This makes it my first finish in my Spring to Finish challenge.

I must say, I love this quilt.  Love it.  It could be one of the favorite I have made.  I really love these fabrics.  They're so beautiful.

I used the disappearing nine patch pattern and sashed them using Moda Bella Solid in Weathered Teak.  It is a truly wonderful color.  I think it was an excellent choice and I hope to find ways to use it again.  

I especially love these mushroom looking flower ones.  I don't know what it is about them.  Adorable.

 I bound it with a purple Kona solid.  Eggplant, I think.  It was what I had around so it was the best option.

This quilt is now ready for a hand off to Rebekah to be donated to Children's Village in Detroit.  I hope the recipient loves it as much as I do.

Just wanted to let you know that you never know how long you will be copied. I loved your quilt so much with the weathered teak sashing that I copied you and used it on my paintbox quilt. It's still a flimsy, but I can't wait to finish it. I hope it turns out as pretty as this one.
