Science Fair Time

Finally, finally J's Science Fair quilt is done! I am so happy with how it turned out, and I cannot wait until next week to give it to him. They will be coming here for Thanksgiving and I am going to give it to him then. Yay!!
         So glad we got pictures yesterday. Today is dark and rainy out there.

The back, I love. In this picture, you can't tell what the largest area is, but it looks grey. But it's not.
                     It's this fabric.
 I put his initials in three of the spaces.




 I quilted 4 lines close together every 6 inches or so, both horizontally and vertically, and then did more curvy, round quilting inside those squares.


 There wasn't enough of the molecule fabric to bind with, so I mixed it up with some orange Kona, which I had in my stash.
I can't wait to see what my little science guy thinks of this!
Pattern measurements are based on the pattern in the book Modern Bee, by Lindsay Conner.
Linking up with Crazy Mom for Finish it Friday.
