Art inspired quilt

I am taking part in a mini quilt swap on the 15 minute blog site.  We have to pick a piece of art and make a small 15" x 15" quilt to represent the painting.

Here is what I came up with!

I kinda see starry starry night you!

Not sure if I will use this one for the swap....might have to pick a different painting.

Prayer Quilt

I saw a beautiful quilt Victoria made with a panel of Mary.  I found some panels of Mary and ordered some.  I based my design on the one Victoria from the 15 minutes blog made.  Hers is so pretty so I decided to give it a try.
I made this prayer quilt for a friend who is having colon cancer surgery next week.  I had it blessed at church and gave it to her.  She loved it!
It is only about  15" by 25" and it took me 4 days to make.   I was able to work on it about 45 minutes to an hour everyday.
Here is a photo of the front and the back of it!

I was digging in my sewing room closet looking for a purse pattern and I found this!  I forgot I had it.
I got this a couple of years ago at a thrift store...I can not remember how much it cost but I'm sure it was not very much. It is in great condition.  It measures 85" by 106"  Huge!
Anyway, I would like suggestions on how to finish it.  It is all hand pieced. and scalloped around the edges (a binding nightmare!) 

Here are a few pictures of it.
