My "first" quilt is finished!

Last week while sitting in front of the TV I finished the binding on my first* quilt. The class I was taking ended and I still didn't have a finished top, nevermind a back, batting or binding. I ended up going into the shop on a Saturday and 4 hours later I was ready to hand sew the binding on! It seemed like such a tiring process to get to that point, maybe because I was rushing to get to my town's craft fair or maybe because I hadn't eaten since breakfast... but anyhow I left the quilt shop exhausted but very satisfied :-)

Some of the ladies in my class machine sewed the binding because of a lack of time. I have lots of time, having no kids an all, so it took me 2 movies to finish the twin sized quilt. Sewing on the binding was such a nice process! I think I liked it so much because for everything else involved in quilting you need a machine to do it, therefore I'm away in my craft room... alone. But with the binding it gives me an excuse (and a reason) so relax with BW and watch some TV, HGTV to be exact. We're addicted to that channel!

Here's the quilt! I love it. Oh another nice thing about the binding, I could use the quilt to keep warm while sewing it hehe.

The colours look so much better in daylight! Thanks to SVP for holding it up.

* I say first quilt because the other ones I made I made them without any instruction... they still turned out pretty good tho, if I do say so myself.
