I picked up the quilt from my quilter mid-week, and then picked up a yard of fabric to make the binding Friday. Saturday I made the binding and attached it to the back of the quilt, since I knew I would be machine stitching it down (which I do on the front). Today I did just that, with the same decorative stitch I used on Ariel's Bullseye quilt (a loopy design with a disc on my Elna). I washed and dried it, and voila, it is ready to give to my father.
Here is a closeup of the quilting design.
Really looking forward to giving it to my Dad. :)
