A finish for March !!

Yippeeeee , I finally finished my SAHRR( Stay at home Round Robin) ,it has taken me a while but it is finished and I must say I am happy with how it has turned out . Yesterday I went searching for fabric for the binding and do you think I could find what I was looking for , you see this quilt was entirely from my stash and mostly fabrics that had appeared in earlier quilts . I was looking for the brown that was used in the pinwheel blocks but there was none to be found so I started auditioning several fabrics and nothing really worked . After spending a considerable amount of time searching for brown I decided to look in the containers I had used to make this quilt and look for the green instead and lo and behold there was a piece just the right size to make the bindings ,I was really happy about that :-) I actually am glad there was no brown I think I like the green far better .
This project came about through Sunny of Quilting Dreams and she gave us direction each month as to what the next round should be and it was challenging but I really enjoyed it and I am so pleased I took part , so thanks so much Sunny , this would not have happened without you .
 Another wee finish to share , I am in a couple of postcard groups and accidentally signed up for two exchanges for a landscape postcard so had to scramble on Sunday to get one made and it was mailed off yesterday .
It is a pretty basic design but it was fun to make and I hope the recipient likes it  .
 I am linking up today to the Needle and Thread network ,it has been a while since I have done so . Be sure to stop by and see what everyone has been up to . Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a wonderful creative day :-)
 hugs Sheila

  20. Your SAHRR little quilt is just beautiful. Even though we are experiencing a bit of a heat wave, those colours are perfect as we move into autumn.
