And another checked shirting binding

Well I must be on a roll.
Another finish tonight.
My tulip table runner, the concept for which I copied from May Britt, is complete (Sorry you'll have to scroll down to early April 07 to see her version - I can't seem to get a direct link to her posting.
Nigel was away in Kendal overnight and Monday night is nice and quiet regarding kids' committments, so I settled down to sandwich and quilt this without the usual interruptions. It did help that it's not that big a piece of work - about 16" x 32"
Then I picked a particularly bright charity shop shirt fabric for yet another bias checked binding - I had used it for a couple of the tulips.
As you can see if you look closely I added a little caterpillar to my collection of bugs
And here it is in all its completed glory.
Now - whatever next? ...............................

This is so cheerful, happy, bright, and spring-y! LOVE the caterpiller, and other 'critters'. Great job! I tried to find May's version, but was not successful, but I'll bet hers was wonderful also.

I love it - the binding is just right and it's amazing how adding the bugs just gives it that little bit more interest.
