1/2 year finish line

Hello again dear readers!  Last night while relaxing after the end of Quilt Camp 2013 I sat and finished the binding on my Roman Stripe quilt.  This is my June project for the Lovely Year of Finishes.  I wasn't sure it would get done due to the business of Quilt Camp and the lure of summer but it did.  Hooray!

Here's my start of the month post for June: ALYOF.  I pieced the top last Fall and have steadily been working to get this one all wrapped up so it's thrilling to have another finish under my belt.  
This quilt is also on my Quarter 2 list for the Finish A Long so I'm glad to get a win on two columns. Here's the link to my post setting my Q2 list.  :)  It's nice to keep stacking up the finished quilts with all of this motivation.

I'm still thinking on the name for this quilt, but am leaning towards Stepping Stones.  Here's the stats:
