I finished! I had about a foot of binding left to sew down on a quilt I've had forEVER and I finally got it done last night. The quilt is an Irish Chain quilt made from blocks from an exchange online probably 8 or 10 years ago. I made two tops, one in green and one in blue. The blue one is for my son so I made the border and backing of train and truck fabric. It's machine quilted. The green one is for Fern. I'm hand quilting it and it'll be another 5 years to complete....

The blue one needs more quilting in the blank squares between the chains, but the binding is done and I can add more quilting whenever I'm moved to do so.


This is a picture I found of the blue chain in progress.

I am always impressed with people who can do hand work. My mom is a knitter and a seamstress, my Grandmother was a crocheter, seamstress, and quilter, and I don't do any of those unless forced into it.
That is a lovely pattern too. Good job..
