Full picture

Got the family to hold up my quilt (sans binding) in 102 degree weather. 

Here's a close up.

I have  red, straight on grain, binding cut out for this, but now that I see it all done, I am thinking I would rather have my cream/taupe (bias).  So, I will use the red binding for my Swoon quilt that I am making with my left over French General fabric and see what I have left in my neutrals to make a new binding.  
The corners of this quilt will be curved, so I am thinking I will feel more comfortable using bias and I think the neutral binding would look a little more classic on this quilt.

Some quilted pictures....

I just picked up my quilt from the quilter, but it is dark out and it weighs a ton, so I will post just a few of the pictures that she sent to me in my e-mail.  Tomorrow when I have some help to hold up my quilt, I will post some of my own pictures.  

This one is my backing.

I think she is glad to have it done.  She felt sorry for me when she saw all the cherries she had to stitch around...or maybe she was feeling sorry for herself.  LOL..  Anyways, I love how it turned out.
