    This is such a super easy quilt... but it took me MONTHS to finish it. Every time I sat down to work on it, I felt like the energy was just sucked out of me. What should have taken half an hour, took three hours. It was arduous!

    But it's complete and the recipients loved it.

    I used all scraps from remnants and backed it with some cozy, cream fleece. I was in a huge rush because I left it for the last minute so I cheated and used store-bought binding. I know.. shame on me when I had such great fabrics to use to make a binding! Oh well... my brother and his wife love it and will never know the difference.

    ???? So what's wrong with store-bought binding? Looks great to me!

    Love your fabric choices & combinations. I think it was worth waiting for & bet they do too.
