Bliss Quilt

I'm all done with the quilt from  "The Practical Guide To Patchwork" by Elizabeth Hartman!  In the book, the name of it is Little Leaves.  Since I made the leaf appliques all with Bliss by Moda charm squares, I think I'll call it my Bliss Quilt.  For the quilting, I just quilted a quarter inch on each side of the square seams.  I didn't want to take away from the appliqued leaves.

         And here's the back.  I just did the same as what the book suggested.

                                             Here's a close-up of the binding.
It now sits on the back of the couch in my craft room.   I think it adds a nice touch.
And, as you can see, Lady Liesl, once again, approves. :)

Here's what I've been knitting.  Nothing exciting.  Just some simple baby beanies that will be donated to a local hospital.  I like to knit these while I listen to my knitting and quilting podcasts.
