Huckleberry quilt finish

It feels good to have a quilt finished! Isn't it the best feeling to take a new quilt out of the dryer?

This is the one I made at the class by Latifah Saafir on her Huckleberry quilt. It is also known as Porthole Baby Quilt from the book Seaside Home.

I love it and think it will look great in my son's room.

I quilted it similarly to Latifah's version. I tried something new to me in the center with overlapping rectangular shapes. The navy ring and grey border are concentric rings that I somewhat tediously marked out with a compass. 

I debated about the binding, but in the end went for the grey so it wouldn't really be seen. It makes that navy ring pop.
