end of June

As part of the Lovely Year if Finishes, my June project was to finish quilting my Swoon quilt.  I wasn't sure it would happen as it's huge!  But I spent several nights with no distractions other than Netflix and some snacks to tide me through.

So here it is all quilted and ready for binding.  I'm super thrilled to have gotten to this point and stopped into Hancock's of Paducah after work Friday to find the right piece for binding.  I knew I wanted to go more aqua/teal and love love love the Sketch prints by Timeless Treasures.  I didn't have this color in my stash of Sketch and was super glad to find it and buy some on the spot.  In keeping with my aquatic/ocean theme of the quilt (sea glass, sea foam quilting) the name of this particular color was Pool - a perfect match.  :)

I even managed to start the final step Saturday and will have to get some finished pictures this week to share.  I don't care that it's summer and 90 degrees - once this is complete I'll be sleeping under it!  
Linking up at Fiber of All Sorts for the June finish party.
