I'M DONE!! I DID IT! First quilt finished in 2009!!

Ta da!!!  I finished my French Braid quilt last night/this morning.  I just took it out of the dryer and couldn't help myself and took pictures.  I know they could be better but seeing it is 3:33am on Wednesday, July 15th; well, this is what I got! 

I'm SO proud of me!!  I have renamed this quilt:  RASPBERRIES AND CHOCOLATE


Two of my girls.  This is when Amal got down and helped me baste the quilt.  I made the binding and was measuring it around when Uki made her appearance.

Here it is.  The finished top.

A close up of all the goodness!

This is the first time that I pieced my backing.  I really super like it! I can't keep Uki off it either.  Peach?  Where are you?


Here is my attempt at taking a photo of the binding.  I have since taken off those stray threads.
