Pop Star Update

It's binded and ready to snuggle!
I just love this picture! The colors are so wonderful don't ya think?
I just couldn't  decide on what  fabric to use for the binding so I just did a scrappy binding. I also did NOT hand blind stitch the binding on.I actually did the whole thing on  my machine and I think it turned out okay. The trick is to pin, pin, pin and use more pins to keep the binding in place as you sew.
 If you have followed my blog for a while I think you'll understand why so many picturues....I just love taking pictures!


And here is the back. I just used the same fabric, no piecing on the back. I purchased this fabric from fabric.com for $2.95 a yard!!! It was when they had there Westminster Blowout Sale. Gotta love em.
and here is a pics of the whole back of the quilt.
And I just threw this one in for eye candy!
And the last pic!..The quilt in its entirety! 
Oh-and some people have asked...I did machine quilt this myself, I used a freehand feather design. Also, I did not have a pattern for this. I just used 3" squares from my favorite scraps! Happy quilting!
