About 2 or so weeks later I get my quilt back. I head to T's apartment and we talk about the binding. I decide to make a pieced binding well because I had enough taupe piece left over and didn't go to the store and pick up enough of one color. I really liked the way the pieced binding looked and did my first bit of hand sewing putting on the binding. T helped me put it on and her stitches looked so much better than mine but by the end of putting on the binding I could certainly see improvements and as much as I dreaded the hand work it turns out I love it. It was so nice sitting on the couch and still be stitching away. The quilt was done label and all. I put the quilt in a pillowcase and turn it in for the show.
A few days later we head to school where the show was and I got a chance to see my first finished quilt hanging up. I even heard a few ladies say they liked my quilt! I walked about and saw some amazing quilts. I was glad my quilt got finished and was able to hang with all the others.
A bit later my sister took the quilt with her to my Grandma's. She loves it and it really matches well in her living room. It was quite a quick finish but I am really glad it all came together.
