    Here is my completed Toucan wall quilt. It measures 12 x 14. I wanted to use the green print for the back, but I didnít have enough so I used the branch fabric. The pattern is from: http://www.quiltpox.davisfamilycreat...e%20Toucan.pdf
    I want to thank everyone for their input on the borders, binding etc. :wink: :wink: :wink:
    Iím going to hang this in the computer room that is a tropical bird motif.
    It will go next to the counted cross stitch I made & framed in 1987. I used to do counted cross stitch ALL the time, but no more. :cry: :cry: :cry: With the severe arthritis in the base of both thumbs itís nearly impossible. :( :( :( I always wear thumb braces. :roll: :roll: :roll: Hand sewing, especially binding takes much longer, but I get the job done. :D :D :D
    Itís on to the next project.......>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Thanks Grandma Cindy,
    1st the black was a 1 1/2" strip folded in half & sewn on.
    2nd the green was a 1 1/4" strip folded in half & sewn on.
    Then the binding is 3 1/4 to accomodate the excess bulk from the black & green. Normally I just use a 3" binding.
