I just finished the binding on this hand-quilted little piece yesterday morning. The binding that I used to dread so much is now my favorite part. Hand stitching the binding is such a mindless and relaxing task! This mini-quilt is not big enough to use as a blanket but is better as a wall-hanging. I am really very pleased with the way that it turned out. This was an experiment and i was in no hurry to get it done. I have been picking it up and putting it down for the last couple of months. Good things do come to those who wait! Happy Memorial Day.
