Grandmother's Flower Garden

This is a quilt top I quilted for a friend. Her mom inherited it from a family member. I was going to try to machine quilt it, but it was hand pieced and had lots of lumps and puckers!

I finally decided to tie it with embroidery thread to match the orange centers and green edges.  

I backed it with white muslin and found an exact match for the green for the binding. The binding was cut on the bias, so that I could do the wavy edges.

I think it turned out pretty good for my first non-straight edge binding. Surprisingly, the dark colors didn't even bleed when I washed it- bonus!
