Scrappy Quilt Finished
I've done it...the quilt for my co-worker is finally done.

I didn't end up doing any fancy quilting...I just machine quilted around each square. I need to practice more before I try any free motion quilting on a real quilt. I would have had to commit harry carry on myself if I had wrecked with this quilt after working on it for so long. I think it turned out pretty good. I could have done a better job on the binding...but it was the first time I've attempted the binding on my own without my mentor's ( 32point5 ) help.
I bought the material I need to add my border to the round robin I am participating in. I also got a quicky lesson on how to do a flying geese border from the quilting store ladies. I hope to do that on Friday so stay tuned, I might have more pictures for you tomorrow night.
