After almost exactly two years, my grandma-in-law’s Full Swing quilt is finally done! Hurray!

My goal this month was just to put the binding on. I was a little worried when I went to my stash to find binding fabric because I don’t have very much in that particular shade of blue, and I remembered having cut up leftovers from this quilt in order to try EPP diamonds. But I was happy when I discovered that I’d put aside some matching fabric just for the binding!

According to my notes, the quilt was supposed to have been 75″ x 90″, but it actually turned out to be about 70″ x 85″. Goodness, how did I lose five inches in both directions? In any case, I’m super happy that this is finally done. It’s so nice finishing wips! 🙂
