Stash Bash - top finished

My 'Stash Bash' quilt top is all finished now.  It is only lap size but I managed to herringbone stitch over every single seam in just 2 weeks.  Mind you, there was a little bit of pain in arm and wrist from pushing myself too hard.  Luckily I got away with it and I am now resting my arm for the continuation of quilting on my 'Four Leaf Flower' quilt.

Doing the herringbone is very addictive.  Here is a close up section.  I did the stitching in a No 8 pearl variegated thread and intend to tie the quilt with the same thread. 
This one will be gifted to our second daughter who does not yet own one of my quilts.

Di, what a great quilt I just love the herringbone stitching. Sorry to hear you ended up with a lot of pain, but by the look of the quilt it must have been worth it. I am sure Bon will cherish this particularly with the hand sewing.

This quilt is really nice and the stitching is beautiful! Did you have a pattern for the quilt or did you just "wing it"? I think I would like to use up some of my scraps like this.
