Finished Quilt

It's always fun to announce a finished quilt. This is a relatively new UFO, but it was demanding to be finished and I had everything needed for the finishing including leftovers to piece a backing and binding, so it butted to the front of the UFO line. 
This pattern is called "Scrappy Friends" and was the New Years Day mystery quilt hosted by Quiltbug. The finished size is 45.5" x 65.5" which is a perfect size to donate to the comfort quilt program at my guild. I'm hoping someone will enjoy this quilt for years to come.

All the quilting was straight lines on the diagonal using the walking foot. The binding was finished while watching the olympics at quilt retreat.
Woohoo! Another project moves from the UFO closet to the done pile!
