Almost done

I think I'll call it 'Flight of the Bumblebee'. As I meandered all over the floral patches I was mindful of a bees meandering flight through a garden.
I'm not overjoyed with the quilting and haven't even touched the borders. I used a brown thread for a big wide meander on the pieced areas and I plan to look for a bumblebee patch or some fabric with a bee on, I'll applique that on somewhere. I've pieced the binding, and I have assorted 1 - 2 inch pieces left of most of the strips, and just 3 pieces at about 5inches. Not bad huh? Maybe I'll use the tiny amount left in a label for the back.

That's it for today, I'm off to forage for lunch then go to work.

This is looking great! However, I share your doubts about quilting (not that yours isn't fine!) as I never quite know what colour thread to use on a scrap quilt like that, and once you've started, you're committed!
