String Top Finished


Here is my finished top. I chose a neutral tune for the sashing, and for the binding I will use a fabric left from the blocks. The backing will as well be neutral. The size is 1.75/2 yards. I will offer it to my daughter for her new appartment. She loves joyful colors!



Not easy to take pictures in the wind!




Behind the hanged top is a fig tree, and in the corner you can see a little cat passing by.





Focus on my rose tree, a little spoilt by the high wind. 
I wish everyone a wonderful sunday and a happy Mother's Day!
Christine
