It just needed binding

I've had this wallhanging done and just needing binding for quite a while. We watched Casa Blanca for the first time Friday night so I was able to do the binding. We have been trying to watch some classics but in most cases we aren't impressed! Thankfully they go back in the mail to Netflix.

I stitched the blocks last year from Alex Anderson's site and added colored pencil to them. I had a bunch of 2.5" squares of 30's fabrics so that was the setting squares.

I received the blocks for these American Hero quilts last July and August and set them together into tops and finally got the borders on. One of my yahoo groups hosted a sew-in New Years weekend to work on blocks and quilts for the project. I mailed three tops off Friday.

Ohhh I love the flowers. I've never tried the colored pencils - though I have a lot of them. You'll have to give us some hints on how this is done.

I love embroidery Julie, and those are so cute. I printed out the patterns too, but haven't done anything with them yet.
Is the colored pencil kind of like the color crayon idea?
