Here is the quilt that I was hand quilting for my DFIL but he died way before I hardly even started! I stitched this while mourning. I lost both my Dad & DFIL in the same month, March if 2009.) It became my waiting quilt. Any where I had to wait I quilted on it. Once I finished I was so ready to be through that I put the binding on by machine!

Here's a link to where I posted about it last fall!

I like the whole cloth look of the back.

My Stitches are bigger than I like. I couldn't stitch as small as the dotted line so I skipped every other one.

I see that I need to use the lint roller!!!

Machine binding!

Good to finish a project, isn't it? You did a pretty job, and now have it to remember your two dads.
