Almost Done!

...At least with my Cubic Rhythm quilt! The quilting is all done, it's trimmed and now just waiting for the binding.
I used variegated thread to pull in the other colors of the quilting.

Trimmed the edges

Ready for binding
I'm kind of excited about finishing this quilt. Not only is a Christmas present for my brother and SIL, but it is the very first quilt that I have done from start to finish by myself. I've always had someone long-arm quilt my quilts in the past! Sew, this is my leap into free-motion quilting!

I'm linking up today with Fabric Tuesday at A Quilt Story!

Color Me Quilty!
