Yippee! I DID IT!!!

Okay, Chooky....CROSS MY NAME OFF OF THE TTS SIDE BAR!  My quilt is done, bound and ready to hang....in 8 months.
After I posted my plea this morning to give me some slack I got right on it.  It wasn't as bad as I thought.  My friend gave me some tips and away I went.  I think I would have preferred to use the red fabric for the binding but I didn't have enough and I was determined to get it done today.  So green is is!
I am going to close up now and start on my long awaited SKoW.  It's been staring me in the face for some time now and I didn't want to start it until I finished my TTS.
Thank you again to all of you and Chooky for your patience and your encouragement.
Holly

Actually I like the green binding. It makes the centre with its red border stand out. Well done!

Holly - how sad for you to lose your mother but I see you conquered your binding brilliantly so well done! And I like the green - though I must admit I often go for a binding in the same fabric as the borders - eliminates a lot of "What if??" ponderings . .
Cant wait to see some SKoW
