Project Checklist - Item 3 - Another Quilt Completed!

I'm out of order but still doing good on the old Checklist.  Moving the sewing machine into the dining room has been so helpful to my quilting.  I was able to finish the Modern Meadow quilt this past weekend in record time!  I am impressing even myself.

To refresh your memory, I actually started this quilt way back in August to coordinate with my bedroom drapes and bolster pillow.  It is now late January.  SAD.  The pattern is called Small Plates from the book The Practical Guide to Patchwork and the fabric is from the Modern Meadow collection by Joel Dewberry.

Here it is!

I did horizontal straight -line quilting.  I will learn how to free motion quilt soon!

Here is a close-up of the front with the binding:

The back has two large fabric panels with a stripe of strips in the middle:

    I love the extra piecing in the backing. What a nice touch!
