well here it is! I finally quilted the spalt quilt as part of my June is UFO month agenda. Im pretty happy with it and it was really simple.



 
I used  Annie's Farm stand Orange big dot as the backing and a great simple pale stripe for the binding. 
Im pretty thrilled about how it turned out as a first try with this method. I know I'll be making and doing this style again.
Its great after about 10 years of Quilting to finally feel as though I'm coming into my own as a quilter. I'm finding my voice :) happy me. 
About a year a year ago I received treatment for some previously untreated chronic medical issues.  I can feel the difference. I can really see it in my work as well. I originally made this top about a month after receiving my first treatments. when I look at this quilt. I see healing.
Quilters Rock!
