Christmas Scattered Squares

What are you most proud of? I am proud of the entire project. And even though I hadn't planned it this way, I love it. I even love the pieced back even though I didn't have enough fabric for the back and had to piece it with three coordinating fabrics from my stash. This is also my first time hand stitching the binding (I always machine stitch). Even though it as quite a process I think I will hand stitch all my bindings from now on.

Q&A with gmhnQuilts

K Lee 2Strings asked:
It's a very sweet little table topper. Sometimes the accidental mid-project choices turn out better than the original plan, but the finished quilt is almost always a surprise. I save the hand stitching on my bindings for evenings when I watch television. That way I don't feel the tediousness and the time goes by more quickly.
gmhnQuilts answered:
I hope it gets faster the more youdo! This one took me about 2 1/2 hours to hand stitch and it's a small table topper. I'm nervous about doing my BOM quilt... it's going to take forver.
Amanda Quilts asked:
Like those fabric choices!
