Bound and Photographed - First Finish 2019

May I say "Hooray!"   I have my first official finish for 2019.  The Flamingo quilt is bound.  We took a trip out into the cold wind for a photo session.  The wind was blowing and it appeared that I would not get a good shot of the quilt.
But then, this isn't a bad photo of it. 

I persevered and got a photo of the back with it hanging reasonably straight. 
I love the wild stripe of pieced fabric.  I simply used the extra parts from the front.  The quilting also shows up pretty well in this photo.  I did a loose echo around the embroidery,  bit of ruler work and finished off with some meandering and wavy lines. 

Then I finally got a good photo of the front of the quilt. 
Notice that BLUE sky at the top of the photo.  That is so welcomed after several drab gray days.
