The Final Reveal!

I worked my butt off this weekend, basting and pinning, quilting and binding.. and I did it.. it's done!
I couldn't be more happy with how my Retro Flowers quilt came out!!



I went with a pieced backing


As a lot of you suggested, I echo quilted the flowers and did a stippling on the borders




Okay, one more for good measure :)
I couldn't stop taking pictures of this quilt, i'm sure my neighbors think i'm crazy!



There you have it
and A WEEK before the link party opens! 
What?? I'm never done early!


More to show later this week, I've been attacking the stack of quilt tops I have with a vengeance!

:)
