Happy to be finished…

Today I finished the binding for a quilt from my LQS.  It was big – 74 X 84 – and heavy – 5-1/2 pounds!  It has the usual batting and the backing is made of Minkee, which was very hard to hand stitch the binding, digging down through the “fur” to the actual fabric, and maneuvering that heavy quilt around.

My left thumbnail took a beating from the needle coming up through the Minkee fur.
