The quilting's done; this close up of the front (and back... lighter blue) is the most color-accurate of the pictures that I took on this cloudy day. I'll spend the afternoon today working on a hanging sleeve and binding for this one. I put a hanging sleeve on every quilt that I make, no matter where the quilt will be used. I apply the sleeve (from extra backing fabric) before the binding, incorporating it into the finishing process, that way I never have to think about adding one again... it's already there! This one is destined for the back of the rocking chair in our guest bedroom. This quilt is the result of a workshop on String Quilting that I took from Ami Simms three years ago at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, VA.; I'm extremely happy with the final outcome!
