by the hair of my chinny,chin chin

It's stippled, binding is on, it's washed and ready to go! Her birthday is Thurday the 23rd and I'm sending it out this morning. It should get to her in time. Nothing like a last minute thing. I hope she likes it.
This is what I came up with for the back. Once again I didn't want to buy any fabric so I had the two bigger pieces in my stash and then just used leftover fabric from the front. Just chunks cuz I needed a bigger amount. This quilt measures 51x66.5. That's small to me but Marilyn is only 4'11". So this will be big for her:).

I used Denyse Schmitz brown fabric for the binding and LOVE it. Her fabric really is soooo great! I get to go pick my oldest up from camp today. Man I've missed him. It just isn't the same without one of your kids. We are making it a family thing. It's a couple hour drive so it should be a good time. I don't have any binding projects so I'm taking some library quilting books with me to look at.
Hope you have a FANTASTIC day!!!!
