Finally surrounded!

I finished the quilt for my mom's 75th birthday, my stepdad's 76 birthday and their 20th wedding anniversary! And 13 days before the party. I am so proud of myself. And overjoyed. I started it in late May. With a fulltime job and no vacation this summer, it is amazing how fast it actually went.

As you can see, it has kind of a 'wavery' binding.... I could tell you that it was done by purpose:) However, I redid the border twice, and even then it got too big. I think it is a result of the massive machine quilting. It shrinks the quilt. But mom will love it, I am sure.

Happy birthday, mom.
