"Walking the Neighborhood" Mini Quilt

Do you walk with your friends in your neighborhood?
I'm lucky to have a couple friends to walk with in Eagle.  Sometimes we drive down to this hill and walk on some hiking paths and sometimes we stay close to home.
 This morning, as I was finishing up the quilting on this mini to give to a friend, I was thinking what to call it... Home Sweet Home, There's no Place Like Home, Home is Where the Heart is.... and then
 I got a text from her saying, "How about walking the neighborhood?" and it seemed to be the perfect name!

 The morning filtered light is sure a contrast, compared to the second picture with the afternoon light.
So this morning we did go walking in the neighborhood and this afternoon I finished up the quilt with gray binding and will take it over to her soon.
Credit: My quilt is a version of Quilt Hollow's mini quilt based off a Carrie Nelson (her blog with wonderful things is LaVieEnRosie) pattern called Tiny Town and I found a tutorial here.  Here is the darling mini by Quilt Hollow with link to go to her blog.
Linking up at Busy Hands Quilts and Freemotion by the River

What an enjoyable post today! I absolutely adore your table topper and love how you changed it up and made it 'your own'. You've chosen the perfect name for it!
