Finishing the last quilt in the Cotton Robin

I am determined to finish the last quilt of this year's Cotton Robin this weekend.  After I finished the quilting, I went looking in the purple bin of stash fabrics for binding ... but none of the purples were quite right.   Turquoise was another possibility, but when I auditioned from turquoise fabrics, they all felt like too much turquoise.  And then I found a small piece of this hand dyed, hand screened fabric. 

Binding fabric

The splotchy mix of purples and turquoise made me think of old Reese's Peanut Butter Cup commercials - "You got chocolate on my peanut butter!"  I think it's going to be perfect.

We can't reveal the little round robin quilts until they have all been finished and returned home–probably sometime in July–but here's a peek of the corner of this one, with the binding, ready to go.  

This will be my Slow Stitch Sunday project later today.
