My Very First Quilt - Finished!

I finished the binding a couple of nights ago, and now it's done. Finito. Over. And what a great lesson-quilt it was. I learned so much while doing this - and many of my lessons can be seen (to me) in the flaws and unique features of this quilt. My binding is pretty poor and uneven, but as I stitched it, it got better and more even. And as much as I've whined about not wanting to do binding, it was really a lot easier than I thought it would be. It's now something I can do while in the recliner watching TV, like I do cross stitch.
