But who's keeping count? I finally was able to quilt my sister's birthday present the way I wanted to all along (pretty much). So today it's finished and in the washer. And she's still in her 30s so I don't want to hear any complaining. Because of the long drive to Phoenix I was able to get the binding on this in about 4 days. But I still am having a hard time talking myself into machine stitching my binding. Let's see how much longer my poor fingers hold out.
