Hashtag quilt finished

my Hashtag quilt is COMPLETE!
  I am so into the color ORANGE that I had to use
one of orange 
prints from  the Scrumptious line.
Scrumptious will be in stores October 2013
 Who would have thought of a hashtag quilt before twitter
came along? This quilt was a class that
Camille Roskelley
taught on Craftsy.
As soon as Camille told me she was doing this, 
I had to sign up since I am a fan.
These 2 pics are from my instagram. Sorry for any duplication.

When sewing on the binding, I like to add a piece of the
 selvedge so I can 
remember what collection I used to make the quilt.

My friend Julie Hardgrave is a fantastic calligrapher. 
She makes hand drawn labels for me!!
Call me lazy or smart, but I add my label in as I 
add the binding.
That is when I remember to put on a label!
 The quilting is yummy!!
Now the dilemma? Wash or not? 
Don’t laugh, I know that is a silly question. 
Eventually it will have to be washed. Normally I do 
not wash my quilts until 
they have actually been used. 
Most of the time I am making a quilt for market 
and I never want to run the risk of the 
quilt being 
 for the show. 
What would you do?
