Mark's Firetruck Quilt

I bought this fabric as a kit at a wonderful quilt show in Nashville, TN. I loved the vintagey feel of the firetrucks and I knew it would be a great quilt for my littlest one.
Finally got around to finishing it a few weeks ago. I had the top pieced in the spring, then sent it off to my wonderful sister to machine quilt it (she has a mid-arm, but I'm not jealous or anything...) Then early this fall I sewed the binding on the front and the only left to do was HAND sew the binding to the back. I really dont' mind this process, but alas, it sat in my living room for months before I just picked it up and finished it. I'm so glad I did. Of course, I had to make a matching pillowcase :)
