Finally a Finish

My scrappy wonky log is finally done. If you want to learn the process of how it was made you can read about it here. I'm glad I took the time to do the applique.
I think it adds a nice touch. Plus it gave me a chance to try a new applique method.
I was thrilled when I found the beautiful Kaffe in my stash to bind it with. It was a perfect match. Drawing in all the colors of the quilt in one wonderful fabric.

I didn't realize Sarah was starting her Friday Whoop Whoop. But now that I do, I've linked up. Go and see what others have completed, give them a pat on the back with a kind comment, and receive a little inspiration.

Now, which PhD to tackle next?
