It's finished!

With just two hours to spare, my Zakka Block Quilt is finished.  I used a long stitch quilting method learned years ago from a dear group of women at church sewing circle.  It was here I learned how to quilt, and this long stitch was a great way to build my confidence to move on to fine quilting. It's also much quicker!  Without further comment, here it is!

I like it!  I wasn't sure at first about the blue, but a finished quilt always looks better.  

The backing is pieced as the pattern suggested.  Not exactly a Zakka style back, but...this just happened to be a large piece of fabric I had that blended well with the colors.

I'm posting my quilt here
