One last step

One last step and I will be done with my latest project: an actual quilt with binding. It has been some time since I have made something with binding. I have gotten the binding on, using the tips I saw jaybirdquilts, and just need to sew it down by hand.

I am very proud of this quilt; it isn't perfect, but I did do a lot of things right that I have messed up before. I am especially pleased with how the quilting turned out as I debated if I wanted to do it myself or pay to have it done. I got zero puckers and my boss, who quilts, asked "how did you get the stitches so even?" I don't know, but I think it's just that I got the tension right this time.

Here it is tossed on my couch last night (sorry for the crummy iphone picture). I finished putting on the binding and went to bed. It's really easy to lose track of time when quilting. 
I was going to give it to a co-worker before she went in for surgery, but she is already on leave. So maybe she will be super nice and let me come by her home and drop it off. (She emailed previously and said she didn't want people stopping by and seeing her without her hair and make up done.)
