Eclipse Block Lotto Quilt Finished

When I won the January Block Lotto and I started receiving quilt blocks, I never expected to finish it in March!  Whohoo!  I just loved the blocks more and more.  It's special because as I received the blocks from all over the world I machine embroidered the first name and location of the person that made the block.  This makes it even more special to me.  It's much more modern than what I currently make.  It hasn't run through the washer and dryer yet for a good fluff.  I was so excited to finish it and have Ohio SUNSHINE to take the picture.  Here it is:

It measures 72" x 82" -- perfect for the couch!  It is the first scrappy binding that I have tried.  I think the scrappy binding works for it.  I bought ZERO fabric to complete it!  Everything, even the tread is from my stash!  Yippee!!!  My stippling is getting better.  I still need to work on getting the back perfectly flat.  If you know of a tutorial on how to do this let me know.  Here's a close-up of my stippling.  I'm soooooo happy with it!

Here's the pieced back.  The little white label says, "Block Lotto 2012 Eclipse
                                                                                    Kathy ______ East Canton, Ohio"
