I love the way my wonky quilt turned out.  The blocks were made from a swap on here.  They all go together so wonderfully.  I found the perfect fabric to back it with and the stripe fabric for the binding looks great!  You swappers rock!

Here's the back.

A close up of the quilting.  I wasn't sure what to do, so I did wonky, wavy lines.

And a close up of the backing fabric.  Isn't it cute!

And one last close up of one of the houses on the back.

Hope you like it, too!

It turned out so well Sandy! Love the backing fabric. Did you hand quilt it?
