Finished.....

I put the binding on this quilt Friday night but saved the photo for today since I knew I wouldn't be doing any sewing yesterday.  I'll show a full view in the next couple days.  I need to clear one of my double walls so I can hang it for the photo.

Dad really enjoyed the family reunion.  Usually he's ready to go home in a couple hours but we ended up being there 4 hours.  There were 19 family members there from 8 states.  The majority were from Dad's cousins' families and one had never been to the reunion before.

I'm glad you and your dad enjoyed the reunion... sounds as if he is doing well to be able to stay and party that long!

Love your quilt... esp the quilting... I'm going to try that on a "jelly roll race" quilt I made!

I love that zebra binding, too! Someday (maybe sooner than you think) I will do one, lol.

that's nice to get together. We all get together a couple times a year but that is my siblings and their children/g.children -- we have no cousins from my generation that live in Arkansas. Actually I have very few cousins and I have actually not even met about half of them.

Glad your dad had a good time at the reunion. Love the binding fabric on this piece, you continue to surprise me with your choices and make me think outside my box.

A treat for you that your Dad enjoyed your reunion. I know a parents' response affects us too. I am assuming your Dad is the oldest member ? So nice that so many came to see him.

I too will look forward to seeing the quilt in full. So far the zebra binding sure catches my eye.

Your jelly roll quilt turned out so pretty, and the zebra stripe is just the perfect finishing touch.

Glad your dad enjoyed the reunion.

Great binding!

We're having a reunion in December and will celebrate Mom's 80th birthday. We don't have a lot of extended family but with 6 of us kids and our families, a few aunts, uncles, and cousins we get a nice size crowd.

Love that binding! Stripes of any sort seem to make the best binding!
