Yay! O.M.G.! I can’t believe it’s done – woot woot! Can you tell I’m a little excited? LOL
I put the finishing touches on the quilt this evening and it’s now in the washer getting clean (geez, I hope it doesn’t fall apart—LOL!) Here are some pictures of the finished product:
I used a zigzag stitch while binding which of course shows on the back, but it blends in pretty nicely since the backing is mostly black. After I was 3/4 done with the binding I realized I was pulling it too far over the front and in many places the binding is almost not visible at all on the back Lesson learned – but I didn’t have the heart to rip it out 😦
Since this is my first full size quilt and it’s for my Mom, I’m sure she’ll understand…I hope so anyway! We leave Thursday morning for Maryland and I’ll be seeing my Mom on Friday when I take her for her next chemo/radiation treatment. I can only hope this quilt will keep her warm and comfy when she gets home.
