Big Wednesday Woohoo

I just took the last stitch on the binding for this quilt.  It was Bonnie Hunter's mystery last year and was called Orca Bay.  It is also in her new String Fling book.  Hers was in red, black and white.  My version is pink, teal and purple and is called Flamingo Bay.  Though the top has been finished for  a while, it was supposed to have a pieced border, and the pieces for that went missing for a while. 
I have been sewing bindings in the evenings and by the time I finish, it is always dark.  The next time I am home during daylight hours I will try to take them outside and get some better photos.  Evenings have been busy with school things.  Monday is Academic Team and Thursday I have a class for three hours.  Speaking of class, I have homework to do and lesson plans to think about.

I think your quilt is my favorite "variation" on Bonnie's colors. Wonderful finish. The teal binding is perfect. I'd love to see daylight pictures that show the quilting, too.

Congratulations! That's one big baby, isn't it? And it's beautifully done. Mine is still waiting for a back...

Beautiful scrappy quilt. You have a lot of patience, after so much piecing, I am sure I would have skipped the borders!
