    Maybe you're not supposed to sho it until it has more prayers embedded into it!

    Such a beautiful quilt and a wonderful accomplishment. I cannot imagine going to any school, much less nursing school with small children at home...
    Congratulations to both of you!!

    2 1/2 inches is what I like for binding. When I have been pressed for time I have used either a coordinating thread and just stitched it down or clear monofilament . Good luck

    It's lovely and will be treasured, I am sure, however you quilt it. Do what works readily for you, since you have a tight deadline.
