Finally DONE

This has been laying around for a long time, and I finally broke down and put the binding on it. UHHHHHH FINALLY DONE. CHECK OFF THE LIST. I still need to wash and dry it so it can shrink up and get wrinkly but I wanted to take a picture anyway. I hand quilted it, and picked fabrics that looked older, I wanted it to look like it came from scraps. Anyway- today I get the binding, and I'm debating between two different colors, and I'm leaning towards the brown, and the lady at the counter says "oh, just go ahead and pick the brown, (like it was a bad choice) it's more you." "what is that supposed to mean?" "well you know, you like weird stuff." hmmm,,, I happen to like my style, plus she complimented my quilt, so I'm thinking, "you like my quilt, and I made that! I put the colors together!" Those Joann ladies...uhhhhh....
