Progress this Weekend

I think that this is one of my fastest finishes especially for a quilt of this size.  I started piecing this quilt on April 14th and today I am sewing on the binding.

Yesterday there was a conversation regarding the ownership of this quilt –

but we came to an understanding and Gus let me continue the machine quilting.

With this setup the machine quilting is a pleasure rather than a necessary chore to get a quilt completed.  I estimate that this 50″ x 62″ quilt took me around 5 hours to machine quilt.

Here is the progress for Sunday evening.  I will hand sew the binding down while I am watching TV this week.  Gus will insist on sleeping on my lap under the quilt while I sew.  After all there are compromises in every relationship – right?
