Down to the Wire

I just got the machine part of the binding sewn onto Ms. Mary's red necktie quilt.  The black wool she gave me to use is as soft as cashmere.  Cutting and sewing with it was just like butter.  I am in love.

Tomorrow, I'm going to do my very best to hand stitch the binding to the back side of the quilt & finish it by my 7 pm KCMQG meeting.  Wanting to take it for show and tell.

It will feel really good to have a finish!  And it will feel even better to ship this quilt to Mary.  She is a special lady.  Will post more about her and the story of her necktie quilt soon... and I'll include pictures of the finished product, too!
