Oodalolly quilt

It is finished!  This was a lot of piecing, a lot of quilting, and for some reason, the binding took me forever, but I am thrilled with how it turned out.  
I did straight line quilting with my lines every 1/4 inch to about an inch and a half a part.  I really like the texture that it gives to the quilt.

Here is the fabric that I used for the backing.  It probably wouldn't have been my first choice, but a few months ago I ordered 0.5 yards of this online.  And guess what they sent me instead . . . FIVE yards.  The store said that since it was their mistake I should keep the fabric, so it was a natural choice for this quilt.  The back is a little crazy and the front is a little crazy so I was hoping the Kona Ash binding would tone things down a bit.  I am happy with the result.
