Simple Abundance Postage Stamp Quilt

Without a doubt, my favorite kind of piecing is simple patchwork.

I've had this top pieced for about a year and a half. I kept meaning to quilt it up... but somehow it got stuck at the bottom of the pending pile. Well, a couple of weeks ago I stitched up a backing, loaded it onto the HandiQuilter, and spent an evening doing a quick all-over meander.

I stitched the binding down last week while watching the Bruins-Blackhawks Stanley Cup games 1 and 2 (go Bruins!!)  I even grabbed a little cat nap under it Saturday almost as soon as it was done (while waiting for an overtime period to begin).

Can't go wrong with a little FMF on the back. It turned out really cute.
