Modern V quilt- DONE!

TODAY is the LAST day to enter the giveaway.  Leave a comment on this post to have a chance to win 1 of 6 giveaway items!

 The Quilting Book Club this month had us doing the Modern V pattern from Amy Ellis' book, "Modern Basics".  I loved the pattern, it was easy to put together but had a complicated look to it.  However, her original design only called for two rows of blocks.  I added the third and also I made the blocks a bit smaller.  I am happy with the result.  It looks like a baby boy quilt to me so I will probably gift it to one of my many expecting friends!
 I don't recall the name of this line, but it is made by Michael Miller.  I picked up yard cuts from my LQS when they were having a 50% off every bolt in the store sale.  I can't help myself.

 I tried to get some closeups of the quilting, but you can't see it very well.
 I used a striped binding... striped bindings are my favorite!  OR do I love scrappy bindings better?  I don't know, it's a toss up.
I really like this backing fabric.  It looks rich to me.  This was a fun quilt to make and I am happy that I finished it... ON TIME!
