No Cure for the Summertime Blues

Well, in between trying to scan my entire sheet collection for updated shop listings, get my UFOs rounded up for my upcoming challenge, laundry, and just wanting to sit and vegetate, I finally managed to finish this quilt!
It probably would have been done a couple of days ago, except I decided I wanted my binding thread to match the binding and wanted to wait for the Memorial Day sale at Joann's before I went and purchased the thread.
No worries, it is down now, and I really like it. I'll be putting it into my Etsy shop, so hopefully it will find a nice home.
It finishes out at 55" x 60", a nice lap or throw size. Something to put on the lawn during outdoor Summer concerts, perhaps?
The backing is made up of 12" squares of several of the fabrics that are on the front. It's been quilted with some straight lines outside some of the seams, but not all of them.
In other news, if you're into vintage sheets as fabric, I've added a couple of bundle deals to the shop. Pick 5 or pick 10 for the special price of only $1 per fat quarter.
I'm currently in the process of updating my pictures with scanned swatches to better show the color. I'm also adding many prints that I've had around, but have escaped being listed.
I'm also open to trading fabrics, so drop me a line if you want to perhaps swap some stash!
