King's Crown Done

Thursday evening marked the beginning of Maine Quilts, our state's quilt guild's annual quilt show. They always kick it off with a Champagne Preview on Thursday evening from 7:00 to 9:00. I had a free ticket for the preview and went to the show, but I also made up my mind I was going to finish my King's Crown quilt that night as well. I worked on the binding for quite a while during the day but still had most of a long side left to hand stitch. Took me until one in the morning, but I got it done, had it on the bed, and slept under it. Yay!

Most of the fabrics in this quilt are civil war repros, but there are a few odd pieces that I liked and appealed to me. The original quilt was set on point with all different sashings, but I didn't much care for the look of it; so I kept all my sashings the same and added a four patch in the corner of the border. Love how that looks!
