First March Finish

I finished quilting my One Block Wonder piece yesterday but was gone last night so didn't get the binding done until this afternoon. I haven't washed it yet and Tom's not home from work to hold it for a straight on photo. Perhaps I'll get a better pic later.

I've decided to call this "Imperial Gardens". Do you see my solution to not having enough fabric to miter the corners with the border stripe?
It's hard to decide which way I like looking at it best. I may have to put hanging sleeves on more than one side.
I did a looping stipple in the center.

And a regular stipple in the outside border. I used black variegated King Tut thread for the quilting in the inner border.

Two more Dutch Treat blocks finished Sunday night..

OMGosh Mary your quilt is absolutely beautiful!!! Your "solution" for the miters is unbelievable, compliments the quilt perfectly. You better believe that I wrote this solution in my quilting notebook LOL.

I am not a fan of the OBW's but yours is the most awesome one I have seen yet! I may just change my mind...It takes the right fabric and I think you nailed it!
