Finished Lemon Squares

I finally finished my Lemon Squares quilt this week. Last Saturday my husband had to do a little work then went to play football and both of my boys took nice long naps. So I had over 2 hours to myself to quilt. And I ended up finishing my whole quilt in my little marathon. It is a pretty small quilt only about 55 inches square and I did a large meandering stipple. I am also way too lazy to hand sew the binding on, so I machine stitched it on. That probably took me as long as quilting because I went so slow and wanted even stitching on both sides. Here is my husband holding it up for me:

Front--extra crinkly from where my son was rolling around with it on the floor

Back-I was just a little short on fabric so it is pieced at the top too.
I used all Dear Stella Mimosa fabrics in orange, pink, and yellow. I used a half yard of all except the dark pink and used up every bit, even in the scrappy binding.

This is my January finish for
A Lovely Year of Finishes
