    Finished it had to put in a really late night. brothers wife had baby to early so I had to finish it quick. Tried to find a binding at walmart but they only had polyester and the quilt is cotton so i just folded over the backing. I really like it. I broke my walking foot and my needle bout 3/4 the way through put in new needle and used zigzag foot to finish it. Gave it to the parents and baby today and I really miss it LOL spent so much time with it!! I hope my nephew loves it !
