Finished! Snow's blocks into a quilt

When my friend Snow first started quilting, she did several block-of-the-months and other programs. There was one BOM that she got bored with, so she gave me the blocks.  There were 8 blocks total, 2 each of 4 different blocks

In addition to the blocks, she had some of the blue vehicle print and some of the stripes.  I was able to get just enough out of the vehicle print to alternate blocks.  Two of the vehicle blocks are pieced, but I don't think that it's super obvious.

I used the stripes for the binding and still have a little left.  I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  I did some straight straight line quilting on the diagonal, and I eyeballed it.  When I had it laid out on the dining room table, Husband looked at the quilting and remarked that I'm getting better.  I appreciated the praise, but explained that it might be because Snow pieced the blocks, so they were more likely to be accurate to begin with :)

 I was almost done with the binding when I last saw Snow, so she's seen the (almost) finished product and is pleased.  This will be going to Project Linus at the July meeting.
