I fiiiiiiinished! Yay! It was a lot cooler-looking in my head, but Katy said to pretend that you’re blind and your horse has the trots, and it’ll be okay. :>

In this picture, you can see the wonnnnky circle fmq-ing that I tried to hide in my last WIP post. I washed the quilt before I took the picture in the hopes that the crinkles would mask it a little. Oh, but I was happy about my new gardening fmq gloves: $1.20 at the grocery store, and they worked wonderfully!

I forgot to take a close-up picture of the binding, but I had fun with it: in each color chunk, I found a similarly-colored scrap, chopped the chunk, and sewed the scrap in. I was sad that my grey binding strip didn’t make it in — it had the Pac Man ghosties that are also in my dad’s potholders (this quilt is for him).

Thanks, Kate and Kristie for hosting this wonderful quilt-along! This is definitely a block I’ll be coming back to!

Oooh… I’m also linking to Crazy Mom Quilts’s Finish It Up Friday since I really did just finish it. :}
