Peppermint Pizzaz, quilted!

I wrote about this "Peppermint Pizzaz" table topper here,
 a few weeks ago. 

This is what I need to machine quilt, the foot, my grippy gloves that make my arms tense :) and of course my quilt.  
I think it took about 5 hours to quilt.

There, it's all quilted!

Now I cut off the batting, flush with the edge of the quilt.

Sew the binding on.

Handstitch the binding onto the back of the quilt.

Yeah, it's finished!  Always a great feeling :)

I wanted the peppermints to stand out a little, so I machine quilted in the ditch.  I quilted jigsaw shapes on the rest of the quilt.

I stitched in the ditch with the pinwheel stars, and the squares outlining them.

I just love the fabric I chose for the back, and I love the horizontal striped binding.

Quilts always look more beautiful after they are quilted :)
