Default Picture Frame Quilt finally finished. Posted pictures as promised

I finally finished my picture frame quilt. I posted some pictures as promised. I was so glad to use advise from you on quilting in the ditch of the straight lines in order to keep them true. It really worked. Hard to tell in picture as my husband is holding it hanging so I could picture it. I then used embroidery machine to embroider quilting patterns in the green grass at bottom (put green leaves on the green leaves) then I used a pattern of flowers in the top floral border. The area of flowers and trees (like looking out the window) I free motion quilted around the flowers, bushes and trees to make them pop. When I did the binding, I didn't want the black to show on back. I therefore made my binding by sewing the black strips onto the strips of backing material so black on black and light colored backing on backing. It was a fun project to do.
