Chopped Flower UFO Finished

      Finally the Chopped Flower quilt is finished.  I spent a quiet Sunday afternoon watching TV while I hand stitched the binding on the backside. 
I really like my version of Leah Day’s “Flowing Leaves” that I quilted in the background.  The quilting was tedious and time consuming but the perfect choice.  You can see a close up of some of the quilting at this link.

In the outer border I meandered and simply to add more interest I stitched the cursive words “flowers” and “leaves” which hardly show on the busy print. 
This is a very bright fun quilt and I am glad it is off my UFO list so it can be really enjoyed.
