A Friday Finish!

I finished the binding on the first of my hurricane quilts last night.  Here is Shine Like a Diamond.   Nine patches were framed in  black and white based on a quilt that I saw on Quilting is More Fun than Housework.    I can't seem to find the exact quilt right now, but I will look for it. 
 I added a black and white diamond fabric for the border and found a backing fabric with diamonds on it.  From the clearance rack!
 This stripe worked for both an inner border and binding.  There is something happy about striped bindings.

Love how all the bright colors are offset by the black and white fabrics! That colorful stripe fabric is perfect and how can you lose with those diamonds on the back? Bonus on the clearance rack! Love this!!!

What a great rainbow quilt. The nine patches would work well as a leader/ender project. The striped binding is the perfect finish. If there were a contest for the most productive person during a hurricane, you would definitely be in the running.
