Just under the wire - a March finish!

I was cutting it close to get a March finish in.  Today I finally put the last stitches in the binding of Tequila Sunrise.  I started sewing the binding down during the Olympics.  This is a small quilt, so that is a long time to take to finish the binding, but I had gotten pretty sick of binding during the Olympics, so I only picked it up again just recently to finally get it done.

Here is a picture of the finished quilt:


And here is the back.  I had no idea what I was going to do with this fabric when I got it, but it ended up being perfect for the back of this quilt.



I do have some new kitty pictures to post as well, but they will have to wait until another post as I am about to fall asleep while I am typing this.  To tide you over, here's a picture of Otis, the kitten that adopted my friend Dawn in December by showing up at her back door.  He's a little doll baby and always provides us with moral support on our quilting days.  This was him showing his support at our February quilting day.  Enjoy.

I love this little quilt! I would love to make one like it...I have never made one like it before. Is the block called "Crossed Canoes"?
