5 & Dime Finished!

Today I officially finished the 5& Dime quilt I started Friday. I finished the binding last night and put the label on, so today at lunch I finished the hand sewing on the label. Since these are not my colors whatsoever... everyone who see's it can't believe I love how it turned out. I was racing Tammy at TSC to get it done and I won! She offered me her kids... said she'd get more done if I had kids and she didn't.
The label was fussy cut from the center fabric and fused on.
A little closer up of the quilting. I did a rather large meander which worked really well and turned out super nice. I did the olive green on top and teal in the bobbin. It's really hard for me to even believe that I'm digging the green in this quilt. I've come out of my purple box... It's been a long time since I've done anything that is purple.

I just love how this turned out. Especially the label. I mean, it doesn't get any simpler than that!
