Flimsy finish Friday

I have a finished flimsy to share!  I have the backing ready too, just need to dig out the batting and quilt and bind it!  This is done with 3 charm packs of Moda's  'Lumiere de Noel' by French General.  I really like this fabric a lot, and had fun making a simple quilt of all HST's.  I starched as I went and pressed all seams open, so it took longer to make, but it made up for it with accuracy in the piecing!  That was very nice to have everything line up so well :)  I think I am going to pick up red thread to match the border to do the quilting as the backing is the same red.  I am unsure what to do for the binding though.  I might have to track down enough of one of the Lumiere de Noel prints for a binding, or maybe find a cream/tan solid that matched/coordinates.

  I definitely want to get it finished well in advance of Christmas though, so I'd better get moving on the quilting!  I like quilting smaller quilts like this though, much easier than a queen size quilt!
