The thread tension got all messed up, and I had a mess on the bottom of wasted bobbin thread, but I was too tired to rip it out and try again.

I think I should have gone with wider binding strips as the quilt is thicker than I had counted on. Attaching to the back is gonna be a fun time of hand sewing.

You can see that there's more than one color there... it took 1.25 pairs of jeans to construct it. Now, I just need to determine if I care that the color is variated (and go dye it navy blue), or not.

You can also see my workhorse sewing machine (Singer 4433 Heavy Duty) setup in the alternate work area... the floor. Feels weird using a hand instead of a foot on the pedal, but it was a LOT easier to manhandle the full quilt on the floor.

I had to clear out half a room to make space... even shove the recliner chair into the next room. Eeek.

These still need trimming, then attaching to each other.

You will notice I need to fix the edge there. Seems I have a wee hole, not that it's hard to fix.

These were "ironed" with my thumb, pressing down against the cutting board. Rather surprised at how effective it was.

I still need to straighten the top a little, then it's basting time. I will have many basting pins in there soon enough.

The corners of the edging have a 45 degree edge to them, This one was the one that matched up the worst, so I think I did OK.

Oh blast it all. I forgot to set up my fantasy baseball team for the week, and Cliff Lee goes and gets a complete game shutout... while sitting on my bench. ARGH!
