Quilt Finish

This is the Stack & Slash quilt that I did the top of in January!  

I finally finished it.  I figured it was a good one to give away as a gift so I had to get a move on.  I had to finish the school fair craft things & get on to this during the week.  It didn't take long really, I just needed to make time.  So one day was getting the quilt back together & basting.  Next day was quilting.  Just ditch quilting in the squares which is quite enough for this one.  The design is in the mixed up fabric squares I think. The last few days I was finishing off the binding.  I got that done only 3 hours before going out for tea & giving it away!  Yay!  It came up really well though.  I am quite pleased with it.  Not bad for some stuff that I had in the cupboard that I wasn't sure what I would use for.  Quite a nice gift too I think.  I am really just excited it's finished & found a nice home.  Plus I still get to see it!

I love it and the recipient would be thrilled I'm sure. It looks like it was a lot of work to do the top. I'll have to get more ideas myself to do more quilting.
