My quilt is really close to being finished!

My quilt has come back from the machine quilter in Utah and I love the way it looks!  It was really, REALLY nice to have the fun of making the top and not have to worry about hand quilting it (as something to give to my youngest daughter upon her marriage, as long as she doesn't marry until she is 35), tying it (not a big fan as a general rule), or trying to man-handle the whole quilt under the (very short) arm of my sewing machine and sew on it for a week or two.  Or three or four.

Now I have to figure out about the binding, which will take me about four or five days to hand sew, then wash and dry it to get it to crinkle up. I can't wait!
