1st Grade Class Quilt-FINISHED!!

I can't believe that this one is done also!! I finished around 12:30 this morning and dropped it off at school at 8:30. I am so pleased with how it turned out and I think the kids were too. They were all trying to find their own squares!! It was pretty cute.
This is the front. I had so much trouble getting those white squares to lay flat and be even, but it was worth it!!
I pieced the binding and hand sewed it down on the back.
This is the back. I don't think it shows off the quilting all that well, but I had sewn around each square - all four sides - with not too much puckering this time. I think this shot also shows the binding a bit better.
My label - I just wrote on the back in permanent marker just like the kids did on their squares :o)

Such a sweet little quilt! I'll let you know what it goes for at the auction.
