Too pretty to cut up.

As much as I like to cut up perfectly good fabric so I can sew it back together again, this fabric is too pretty to cut up. Since my quilting class isn't for another three weeks, I just stitched a two inch diamond grid. Like always. LOL
The back is orange, and I left two extra inches all the way around so I could self bind it with the backing. So easy!
I bravely used green thread on the top and orange in the bobbin, and I was happy with the way it came out.

Except then I began to wonder if maybe brown binding would look better. The cat helped me decide.
We decided orange would be just fine. So now it's finished! It's for a gal at work who will soon have a new grandson.

I really like it, Diana! Everybody likes Winnie the Pooh. I'm sure it will be much appreciated.

The fabrice is beautiful and I dont think I would cut it up either. Your quilt looks so beautiful and your friend will just love it.

Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood la la la la...Did you know that someone published a new collection of Winnie-the-Pooh stories this week? The one I read I think he gets the original tone of AA Milne pretty well.
Oh and I like the quilt too!!!
