Farmer's Wife Finish!

Farmer's Wife quilt is now finished.
The picture looks a bit strange because it is a queen-size quilt draped across a king-size bed. The binding is red with white polka dots. I am really happy with the finish.
Above is a requisite photo of the back. I am a little disappointed in the backing fabric. It is a white on white wide backing fabric. It has a bit of a 'plastic-y' feel to it. I haven't washed the quilt yet, so maybe it will soften after washing.

Photo-heavy post warning: following are a whole bunch of close-ups.

It is absolutely lovely! Congratulations on the finish. It is so hard to get good white/white - I usually use a bleached muslin
