Fall wall hanging

Last night, I finished the wall hanging I've been working on... 
I was shopping at Hobby Lobby with my sister-in-law last month, and she spied the center panel amongst the fall/Thanksgiving decor there.  I'm not sure what whe was using hers for, but I was pretty sure I needed to have one, too, and the price was right....40% off of $2.99.....whatever that is!  :)  I think it was marked as a "seasonal bandana..."  Hmmm..... not sure what it was intended for, but it felt like 100% cotton to me.
 I had a Moda scrap bag which had  a lot of fallish-looking fabric, and I added a few others from my stash.  I hand-quilted this, and it took a lot longer than I expected.  Oh well, some things can't be rushed!
I did what I would call a "self binding".  The backing fabric was large enough - I trimmed it down to inch larger than the quilt on each side and folded it over to the front for the binding.  I hand sewed this down as well. 
Here it is was hard to get a good picture of it.  I probably should have taken it outside tomorrow.  Oh well...the finished size is 24" wide by 25" long.
I'm linking this up to Crazy Mom Quilt's "Finish it Up Friday"..... just because I can!

This is sweet. Now if your luck continues, you'll run into a Christmas or Winter scarf for the next season or holiday!
