Anne's Quilt is finished

M's beach trip is coming up and his sister Anne's birthday is around the same time that they will be at the beach. I'm not going because I can't take a week off during 9 weeks tests. We don't usually exchange birthday gifts but I just had to make something with these fabrics. M thought Anne would appreciate a quilt and I love the hot pink, bright blue, and lime green combo. I wanted to try the cross block, too. It was quite easy. I plan to make a tessellating cross quilt with these and some more of my favorite fabrics.

Front with sashing

Back with left over strips

After a quick rinse and dry-no colors were caught by the color catchers.
The binding is from my fabshophop stash-

All folded and ready to go-
After I put a label on it and share at quilt guild on Monday

That's it for me this week. I have cousins visiting this weekend, so the label may be the only sewing I will get done.
Have you had a finish?
