Done with the quilting part.

I chose to do a wavy "S" but after the first row I hated it but I didn't want to take it out so I had to finish the rest of the rows with it.
Here is a close up of the stitch.

Then after I did the rows I did the columns just in a regular stitch in the ditch but still am unhappy with the other stitch. Oh well though it is not coming out. So I cut my 6 strips for the binding. Sewed them together and ironed them in half. If you have never made your own binding, you don't know how difficult it is to iron it in half. I forget until I have to do it again. I made it all "purty" after I ironed it. Isn't it purty?
Tomorrow I will sew it on, then all I have left ...

is the...

HAND SEWING....

AAAWWWW!!!!!! I hate the hand sewing part!!!!!
And this is bigger then any table runner I have made... ;)
