    Okay, I promise this is the last posting about this quilt! Jackie sent it back to me, and her quilting job is just beautiful! It took me 2 full days to put the binding on it--this is the biggest one I've done so far. When I washed it to get some marks and cat hair off of it, it kind of got that old-timey look. I think my mom will love the quilt. It's for a double bed, and I photographed it (poorly) on my king-sized bed. I think the inner border will probably frame the mattress and the rest will hang over. I mostly wanted Jackie to see what the teal binding looks lilke, and I didn't actually do a very good job of showing that, but I think it was a good choice, and I thank her for her input!

    That really looks nice with the binding. I like to wash mine too so they look old and used. Love the label :) ;-)
